The losers:
RIAA vs. United Airlines: RIAA
Best Buy vs. U-Haul: U-Haul
Comcast vs. Sony: Sony
Time Warner Cable vs. Exxon: Exxon
Halliburton vs. News Corp.: Halliburton
AT&T/SBC/Cingular vs. Clear Channel: Clear Channel
Verizon vs. Bank of America: Verizon
Monsante vs. Wal-Mart: Wal-Mart

Don't forget, if you win the match you're a loser company. If you lose the match, well, you can't even lose at losing.

RIAA vs. U-Haul
Sony vs. Exxon
Halliburton vs. Clear Channel
Verizon vs. Wal-Mart

How did zero cable companies make it into the 2nd round?

I can't think of another category of product where I'm forced to pay for 100% of the product when I only want 20% of it.

Can you imagine buying a pack of gum and getting one piece of grape gum and the other pieces are garlic, (polar bear) liver, anchovy, and fruitcake flavored?

Problem is...

Not everyone has Comcast or Time Warner, so they can't judge how "bad" they are. Everyone knows about Exxon and Sony though. I'm sure if they did "worst industries", cable would make it past the first round. However, I honestly don't have a problem with my cable company or any that I've had.
