TV broadcasters and airlines dominate the top ten as Charter (CHTR) and Comcast (CMCSA) take the third and fourth places respectively, and United Airlines (UAL) the fifth.

    I belive the term "broadcasters" is typically used to describe companies that operate over-the-air TV stations. Charter and Comcast are probably better described as cable MSO's, which are disliked, in part, because in many areas they have a monopoly on the wired delivery of TV signals.

    AT&T is worse compared to Sprint, but still much better than Comcast.
