Comcast brings case for TWC merger to Congress

Hearing probes customer concerns surrounding proposed merger of cable superpowers

Cohen and Time Warner Cable Chief Financial Officer Arthur Minson, brought their case to a largely skeptical congress, fielding questions surrounding how the merger intended to benefit customers.
