Timing is everything, especially in irony. Yesterday, Comcast was announced as the winner of The Consumerist’s annual Worst Company in America poll. On that same day, they filed their paperwork with the Federal Communications Commission to begin the process of merging with Time Warner Cable.
The two-time reigning and defending Golden Poo winner as Consumerist’s Worst Company in America won’t be scoring the three-peat. Electronic Arts was bounced from the 2014 Worst Company tournament after suffering a close first round exit at the hands of Time Warner Cable.
