Dish Network, leading the way in blog spam

This site doesn't get a ton of comments as traditional media people have, I guess, a hard time getting past captcha. But a big thank you to the New Media folk who do comment occasionally.
But those faithful commenters can not compete with Dish Network. Apparently the company has hired a firm in India to flood blogs with Dish Network comments, if this post can be believed. And I believe it, as this site gets lots of spam comments from supposed Dish Network employees. The comments are generally from unique names that link to Google profiles that show that they have recently been created.

The target of the spamming seems to be Time Warner, for some reason. In any case, in honor of Keith Olbermann returning to television (not that I really care) here is to Dish Network, "the worst person in the world."
