TVNewser’s Alex Weprin writes about some behind the scenes jockying going on between certain TV and cable organizations and NBCU/Comcast who are trying to move forward on this merger deal and how the comment period could be extended by several months.

Bloomberg LP, the parent company of business network Bloomberg TV, has asked the FCC to extend its comment deadline on the proposed Comcast-NBC Universal deal by another 45 days. At the moment, comments and petitions opposing the deal must be filed to the FCC by June 21. Bloomberg does not believe that date provides adequate time to put together its comments. The company is requesting the comments period be extended to September 19.
