The Hollywood Reporter‘s Paul Bond has some of the details:
“If you sit back and think about it,” said Borelli, “why would a conservative person in any state want their money to go pay for Al Sharpton’s salary? Have you contemplated the damage that MSNBC and its biased coverage is doing to the overall Comcast business?”
Roberts didn’t buy the premise, given all of the distributors – Time Warner Cable, Dish Network, DirecTV, Verizon, AT&T – that carry MSNBC.
“Ultimately, I think, giving diversity of voices has been what cable has stood for all these years, whether it’s one side or another, so I don’t think in the long run it will change the trajectory of Comcast cable,” Roberts said.
Company shareholder meetings have become popular places for protests. Back in March Disney CEO Bob Iger staunchly defended ABC News and ESPN from charges of bias at a shareholder meeting.
