Comcast named America's worst company in annual Consumerist poll

New, 117 comments

Comcast has been named the worst company in America. The largest US cable provider "won" Consumerist's annual poll on the very same day it tried to convince the FCC that a proposed Time Warner Cable acquisition is in everyone's best interest. It's the second time Comcast has been awarded the unwanted label by Consumerist voters. Video game publisher Electronic Arts earned the "worst company" designation in 2012 and 2013 but lost out early this year when it was knocked out of the running by Time Warner Cable. Comcast was pitted against Monsanto, the oft-criticized chemical and agricultural biotechnology corporation, in the final round of voting. The company almost managed to escape the embarrassing title; SeaWorld — still unable to shake the negative press that resulted from Gabriela Cowperthwaite's powerful Blackfish documentary — nearly defeated Comcast in semi-final voting.
