Boing Boing has collected a batch of links and proof showing Comcast paid people to attend a net neutrality hearing and cheer for them, which displaced reporters and other generally sane people who would have booed and hissed.

It is reported that the henchmen were identifiable by the yellow highlighters they wore. Are there denials? No! Comcast is admitting that they paid people to hold seats for local employees who wanted to attend the hearing. And although it is reported that this tactic is not uncommon at congressional hearings, I don't care. If you needed proof that Cable is up to no good, here it is. Absolutely Comcastarded. [BB]
