The cable company is one entity everyone likes to hate. Perhaps this knee-jerk animosity is to blame for the rush to condemn Comcast's proposed $44 billion merger with Time Warner Cable. Critics complain that combining the nation's two largest cable companies would create a "behemoth" with 30 million customers, nearly one-third the cable/satellite market. But calling this a "cable deal" misunderstands the dynamic nature of the modern video marketplace. America is in the midst of an entertainment revolution, giving consumers more choices than ever.

The Hershey Company is accusing a state senator from Queen Anne's County of using chocolate-colored campaign signs to draw on its sugary "fame and equity" in a bid to drum up votes. In a federal lawsuit filed last week, the Pennsylvania-based confectioner asked a judge to stop Sen. Stephen S. Hershey Jr. from using campaign materials that it believes are too similar to its own logo and packaging. "Hershey is bringing this action to stop Senator Steve Hershey and his campaign from using the famous trade dress of the Hershey's chocolate bar in connection with Senator Hershey's campaign activities," the company wrote in a complaint.

The Baltimore City Council is unanimously calling for area companies to pay their security guards more. The resolution, which supports the efforts of private security guards to unionize, says labor unions "allow for improved terms and working conditons. " The Service Employees International Union's local chapter sent out a news release Tuesday praising the council's Monday action.  The union estimates that Baltimore's more than 1,000 security officers cost taxpayers $33 million a year in entitlement spending because some have to rely on food stamps and public health insurance Some security officers are paid as little as $9 an hour, the union says.

First Mariner Bancorp's days of publicly traded stock are coming to an end. The Baltimore-based company said in a U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission filing Monday that it expects its stock will be delisted from the OTC Bulletin Board as soon as June 24, "at which point the Company anticipates that there no longer will be a trading market for the Common Stock. " First Mariner - which filed for bankruptcy protection in February and auctioned off 1st Mariner Bank to an investor group - said the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority warned that its stock would be removed from listing if it does not file a quarterly financial report by June 23. First Mariner says it doesn't intend to make that filing.

While Millennial Media pioneered mobile advertising, it now competes with online household names Google and Facebook, which dominate the $18 billion market. To Millennial CEO Michael Barrett, that's a good sign. But it's also meant a rough start to Barrett's tenure at the Baltimore-based firm. He took over in January for Paul Palmieri, who founded and led Millennial from its days as a startup in 2006 to its debut as a public company in 2012. As the company's stock tumbled amid a disappointing earnings report last month, Barrett acknowledged on an investor conference call there were challenges ahead and outlined a plan to address them.

The idea for the business came to Greg Vetter shortly after a friend swiped a two-liter bottle of his mom's homemade lemon-garlic salad dressing from his refrigerator. Inspired by the lengths someone would go to for a dressing by "Tessemae," his mom's nickname, Vetter challenged her: If he got Whole Foods to sell the dressing, she would go into business with him. "She said, 'That's never going to happen,'" he recalled. Five years later Vetter, 31, is CEO of an Essex-based company - Tessemae's - that makes the top-selling dressing in the produce department at Whole Foods.
