Every year, Consumerist.com conducts it's annual "Worst Company In America" tournament, better known to Consumeristas as "The WCIA". Readers nominate companies they deem worthy of this fabulous prize, then Consumerist staff selects the most nominated companies and set them up in "Brackets", just like that other March Madness thingie you may have heard about. Readers then vote for their least favorite companies in match-ups like this one: Comcast vs Time Warner. The winner (Loser?) proceeds to the next round to face another equally (un?)worthy corporate devil. The loser (winner?) gets bragging rights to say, "Well, at least we aren't as evil as company X!" And so it goes, until the last company left standing is declared the winner (loser?) and is awarded the coveted "Golden Poo":
I'm pretty sure all of us here have had, um, "experiences" with these Pay TV providers. I'm also pretty sure that whatever company brings you your internet and/or pay TV, yours is the worst. At least as far as you're concerned.
So today, good readers of DTV USA Forums, take a stand against corporate greed and incompetence. Get out there and VOTE in round one of THE WORST COMPANY IN AMERICA!

This year's field is difficult, with so many worthy competitors. This year's odds-on favorite is believed by many to be the evil Bank of America, who were denied a well deserved Golden Poo last year when BP's little accident in the Gulf of Mexico crushed the hopes of thousands who had been trampled by BofA and their forclosures-and-fees shenanigans.
