Comcast received some bad news after posting on Thursday its first transparency report. Despite the document saying that Comcast obeyed more than 25,000 government demands for info during 2013, including 24,698 criminal requests, such as warrants and 961 emergency requests, the report also shows that Comcast isn't under quite as much scrutiny as its peers. The provider received less than 1,000 national security letters last year, while Verizon reported between 1,000 and 1,999 and AT&T says it got between 2,000 and 2,999.
