Comcast/NBC deal scrutinized

Comcast-NBC-UniversalFederal regulators insist they’ll keep a close eye on the proposed merger of Comcast, the country’s biggest cable-TV operator, and NBC Universal, with its vast content-production empire.   Law Professor Keith Hylton, an authority on antitrust law, says the feds need to make sure the merger won’t crush competition or harm consumers.

“But the government should try to make sure that the conditions imposed on the merger do not reduce the potential benefits to consumers.”
