vote buttons Worst Company in America: The Final Four[1]The tournament for the worst company in America is down to four competitors.

One of the contests — which is run by The Consumerist[2] and voted on by the online public — will feature Electronic Arts (NASDAQ:EA[3]) facing down Live Nation‘s (NYSE:LYV[4]) Ticketmaster.

Electronic Arts is in a position to be a repeat winner. In 2012, the company won — or lost, depending on how you look at this — based on its support for the Software Online Privacy Act and other game-related issues. EA beat out Anheuser-Busch InBev (NYSE:BUD[5]) to make it to the finals.

The other bracket has 2011 winner Comcast (NASDAQ:CMCSA[6]) against Bank of America (NYSE:BAC[7]). Comcast beat out competitor Time Warner Cable (NYSE:TWC[8]) for a spot in the final four.

Winners from the final four will be announced today.
