Comcast-NBC merger is likely to affect journalism field

On Thursday, Comcast merged with NBC, which analysts say could be the biggest media merger of the decade. Proponents say this could lead to consumers to watch "what they want, when they want it," according to the Denver Post's Dec. 3 article "Comcast-NBC merger: Goodbye old TV, hello new media." But opponents worry:
"The combination of the country's largest cable company, a TV network, a movie studio plus sports networks could present grave dangers to a free and open Internet," warned Gigi Sohn, president of advocacy group Public Knowledge.
Do you think this will have a positive or negative impact on the field of journalism? Why?
