Democratic senators who don't like the proposed Comcast-Time Warner Cable merger reminded the FCC of that fact in advance of a planned meeting on Wednesday between Justice Department officials and the companies.
The senators were buoyed by reports that Justice was leaning against approving the deal.
Sens. Al Franken (D-Minn.), Bernard Sanders (I-Vt.), Ed Markey (D-Mass.), Ron Wyden (D-Ore.), Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) sent letters to FCC chairman Tom Wheeler and the Justice Department saying the deal would give the combined companies too much market power and the public fewer choices.
