"NBC’s refusal to air our ads validates the exact concerns that sparked our warnings about the Comcast merger," said CWC's Michael Flynn. "If the government approves the Comcast merger, the company will control 80 percent of local political advertising. Censoring our ad should frighten all sides of the political spectrum.

The group's next step is likely to be an FCC complaint, elevating the argument and bringing a government watchdog into it. Meanwhile, progressive opponents of the merger are pounding away, and appreciating the air cover.
