Video: Franken hits Comcast, NBC heads


Yesterday I wrote about Sen. Al FrankenAl FrankenConsumer internet privacy: Leaving the back door unlocked Senators unveil bill to overhaul apprenticeship programs Dems pressure Obama on vow to resettle 10,000 Syrian refugees MORE's (D-Minn.) confrontation with the CEOs of Comcast and NBC Universal during a hearing.

I reported the heated exchange as accurately as I could as it happened in the hearing room, but if you'd like to see it first-hand, Franken's office has posted a clip on YouTube.

The issues in question in the conversation — program access vs. program carriage — are complicated ones. Comcast executives said after the hearing that the disputes are actually much more nuanced than Franken's depiction.

Nonetheless, it's entertaining.
