Rep. Tony Cárdenas (D-Calif.) Wednesday came out strongly against the Comcast/Time Warner Cable merger, calling on the Federal Communications Commission and Department of Justice to block the proposed transaction.      

At a Writers Guild of America West event in Washington Wednesday —the guild is also a critic of the deal— Cárdenas said he had heard from both sides and concluded that he was strongly opposed.
