alphadogg notes a story over at portfolio.com claiming, and presenting evidence, that Comcast paid people off the street to take up room
at yesterday's FCC hearing
in Massachusetts. Comcast acknowledges that it paid people to hold places in line for its employees. But Save The Internet claims that people were bussed in by Comcast and then took up almost all available seats
in the meeting room 90 minutes before the meeting opened, blocking scores of interested people from attending. Such tactics are not unheard of in Washington DC, but how appropriate are they in a regional meeting on a college campus?
