Feel free to say the title of this post like Keith Olbermann would, except that instead of Bill O'Reilly winning "Worst Person in the World" for the 343rd time, the company that wants to acquire Olbermann's network is the big winner. That's right, Comcast was named the "Worst Company in America" for 2010 by the readers of Consumer Reports' Consumerist blog. Comcast won the coveted Golden Poo award, which will be delivered to the lobby of Comcast's headquarters in Philadelphia by a trained French Poodle carrying a spray can with gold paint.
Here's a quote: "In a three-day, knock-down, drag-out bout with Ticket "Apollo Creed" Master, the little cable company that could showed just how badly their horrendous service, exorbitant costs, throttled internet and plans to acquire NBC Universal have ticked the Consumerist readers." Now, one could argue that perhaps Goldman Sachs or AIG are actually worse than Comcast, but they don't make appointments to take your money any time between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., then fail to show up.
