Specter Comments on Proposed Comcast/NBC Merger

Statement

Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Today, U.S. Senator Arlen Specter (D-Pa.), made the following statement regarding the proposed Comcast/General Electric joint venture with NBC Universal (NBCU):

"Recently a number of concerns have been expressed to the FCC and Justice Department regarding the proposed Comcast/General Electric joint venture with NBC Universal with which I do not agree. The parties have made numerous, unprecedented upfront commitments to meet the needs of viewers and protect the interests of competitors.

"I believe that a fair and thorough examination of this transaction, including the issues raised by Senator Kohl, will result in the FCC and Justice Department finding that this joint venture advances the national communications policy goals of diversity, localism, innovation, and competition. I urge the FCC complete its review of the transaction in a timely manner."
