Oh poo! Consumerist sends Comcast 'worst company' trophy

It's not something that will be on display anywhere for public view at the high-tech and elegant Comcast (Nasdaq: CMCSA) headquarters building in Philadelphia, but it might be on display for some employees and/or executives. It is the Golden Poo trophy for the "Worst Company in America" that The Consumerist has belatedly mailed to the nation's top MSO in recognition of "your consistent dedication to providing low-quality service at ever-rising prices," according to an accompanying letter.

Consumerist Golden PooConsumerist Managing Editor Ben Popken used the letter to apologize for taking so long to deliver the "trophy" which Comcast won in April after an NCAA-style round robin reader voting competition with other U.S. companies.

"We apologize for the delay in sending this letter. We know how frustrating it can be to wait around for something that never shows up," Popken wrote.

In addition to the service issues, Popken also cited Comcast's "aversion to upholding basic Internet principles ... and lobbying against net neutrality."
