STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

And today's last word in business is: Cable Rage.

Cable companies make up one of the most hated industries in America.

RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:

And even among cable providers, one brand is despised above all others. A new survey of cable, satellite and other TV providers shows Time Warner Cable gets the lowest marks for consumer satisfaction.

INSKEEP: The best in that department were AT&T, U-verse and DirecTV, two providers that plan to merge. Time Warner is merging with Comcast, which was rated second worst behind Time Warner.

And that's the business news on MORNING EDITION, from NPR News. I'm Steve Inskeep.
