QVC in the news: Comcast lives; the real Trump connection

The Inquirer ran an excellent article by Suzette Parmley on QVC Friday, but notice the words on the sign at the very bottom of the photo (you may have to click on photo to enlarge to see the bottom) :

Comcast exited from its ownership position in QVC in 2003. Nothing wrong with using an old file photo (credited to Bloomberg), but in this day and age it may be hard to justify a stringer, if the reporter can't make the trek to West Chester and shoot the photo. On the other hand, I think its inclusion may have been purposeful. There's s slide show with some other photos attached to the article as well.

And then there's Bloomberg's very funny spot portraying Donald Trump (from an actual post-primary appearance last week) as a QVC host, of which for some reason the embed code won't work, but you can link to it here.

But the real Trump /QVC connection came from his current wife Melania, who had jewelry and cosmetic lines on QVC, though that relationship has apparently ended, as the Daily Beast recounts.
