Video Of Comcast's Opening Remarks During Net Neutrality Hearing With Seats Stuffed By Company Employees
By consumerist.comFebruary 27, 2008
Here’s a video of Comcast VP David Cohen’s opening remarks during the FCC hearing on Monday, the one where Comcast bused in employees. These employees all wore yellow highlighters to identify themselves to company organizers. Note the two guys wearing yellow highlighters in the beginning (one tucked into his metal studded leather jacket, the other tucked into his hair like a daisy). They leave as soon as the talking starts. Guess it wasn’t that interesting for them. Also note how tiny this room was. For a hot-button issue, you would think they would get a bigger venue. Unless, of course, they didn’t want too many people showing up. ArsTechnica has a good summary with quotes of what went down during the panel discussion.
