Ojo con lo que lees

De wikipedia:  Comcast Corporation, formerly registered as Comcast Holdings,[note 1] is the largest mass media and communications company in the world by revenue.[3] It is the largest cable company and home Internet service provider in the United States,[7] and the nation’s third largest home telephone service provider

Comcast tiene muchos productos, entre ellos Comcast Venture Capital:

Venture capital (VC) is financial capital provided to early-stage, high-potential, high risk, growth startup companies. The venture capital fund earns money by owning equity in the companies it invests in, which usually have a novel technology or business model in high technology industries, such as biotechnologyIT and software

Entonces cuando el sitio web THE VERGE pone esta nota: http://www.theverge.com/2014/4/28/5662580/netflix-signs-traffic-deal-with-verizon

Con textos del tipo:
1) “After Comcast, Netflix signs traffic deal with Verizon”

2)”The streaming service cuts deals while net neutrality hangs in the balance”

3) “The announcement mirrors a similar peering deal inked earlier this year made by Netflix and Comcast, and likely won’t be the last of its kind.”

4)”However, the deal flies in the face of the stance Netflix has thus far espoused, saying that preferential treatment violates their definition of true and total net neutrality. In an impassioned blog post, CEO Reed Hastings wrote”

5) “FUTURE DEALS ARE BY NOW A SURE BET”

6) “Verizon has long had issues with Netflix streaming, causing observers to accuse the carrier of throttling the service. Even though the company has officially denied any issues on their end, it did imply that users having issues with content might be the fault of Netflix itself. With the new deal in place, those complaints will likely vanish. But it also means similar deals with other carriers are a sure bet.”

7) “Update 7:40PM ET: A previous version of this post incorrectly equated preferential treatment with the peering agreement Netflix has signed, and stated that the Comcast deal was a one-time agreement. The piece has since been updated.”

Y se averigua que The Verge es parte de Vox Media (junto con Polygon, Curbed, Eater, SB Nation, Racked y Vox)

Y que Vox Media fue fundada por varias venture capitals firms entre ellas COMCAST…

Entonces uno podría pensar: “¿No estoy leyendo a Comcast hablar sobre Comcast? ¿Y no es muy riesgoso eso?

Porque en ese texto hay una tendencia a Engrandecer a Comcast (posicionarla como primera en algo, sin decir cosas malas sobre ella, citas 1 y 3) Mientras que pone en ridiculo a Netflix, catalogandolos de mentirosos (o al menos de ser infieles a sus dichos, cita 4). Y deja pegado a Verizon hablando de la jugarreta chacal que le estaban haciendo a Netflix (cita 6), para que ellos no tuvieran otra que llegar a un acuerdo con la empresa. Ya que sino los usuarios iban a empezar a cancelar sus suscripciones a Netflix, que de hecho, ya lo deben de haber hecho. Y seguramente los de Verizon, y los de Comcast (que hicieron lo mismo pero esta nota no lo dice), tengan esos números, porque ellos son los poovedores de servicios, ellos saben perfectamente que hace cada uno de sus usuarios. Y ahí ni las grandes empresas se salvan y menos si además de ser proovedores de internet son:

the largest mass media and communications company in the world by revenue.[3] It is the largest cable company and home Internet service provider in the United States,[7] and the nation’s third largest home telephone service provider

Ojo  con lo que lees en Internet. Averiguá la fuente real, o sea, quien puso la plata para que eso exista. Te aseguro que van a ser siempre los mismos… Al menos empezá a conocerlos
