Comcast Calls Bloomberg A Liar; Publishes Long Must-Read For New HIres
All the latest in news from Comcast: First, the media giant hit back in its battle with Bloomberg over "where Bloomberg TV is placed on the cable dial in relation to Comcast's CNBC," writes Joe Flint in the L.A. Times.
Basically Comcast said that Bloomberg was a liar, thought it never quite used that word. Instead, Bloomberg was accused of presenting "erroneous facts" in its initial presentation to the FCC about the cable dial issue, which included the "demonstrably false" claim "that Comcast was ignoring the conditions that the regulatory agency put on the cable giant as part of approving its acquisition of NBCUniversal," writes Flint.
In other news, Comcast just published a corporate biography -- a 424-page, 27-chapter book now "being distributed to more than 100,000 Comcast and NBCUniversal employees [that] will become an orientation must-read for new hires," writes Bob Fernandez. That's a lot to read for a new job!
In one quote from this story, a branding firm exec calls the book -- not available for sale to the public -- a “424-page press kit.”
