The article reports that Comcast's institutional investors are calling for the ouster of the company's CEO, Brian Roberts. Chieftain Capital Management, which owns 60.5 million shares, sent a letter to Comcast claiming that Robert's leadership has sent Comcast stocks into a freefall in 2007. However, it is suggested that removing Roberts would be very hard to do.
