Well, this is wrong on the first point. GE doesn't own Comcast nor NBC Universal anymore. It never owned Comcast, but they were the suckers GE sold NBC to.

Gonna call bullshit on these "facts" thanks to a simple mathematical error. 277mil/232=1.19mil not 850000

I always thought that presenting comparative "facts" like this is usually pointless. Like people are automatically impressed by big numbers. Did you know that Americans eat enough tomatoes every year to fill the pyramids of Egypt 10 times over? That those tomatoes laid end to end would reach from here to Jupiter? (awestruck silence at this pointless comparison)
