AT&T came out swinging and said the sale of CNN was a non starter. There was no legal reason for this, so AT&T should win bigly. But I guess trump is used to losing in court so no problem.

Justice Department sues to block AT&T-Time Warner deal - Nov. 20, 2017

Ah, Trump is always a day late and a dollar short. The guy is an idiot of “historic” and EPIC proportions.

Here come The Trumplings: but what about Clinton, what about Obama, etc.

This is a typical Trump banana republic dictator play. This guy is so into punishing his perceived enemies.

The DOJ said weeks ago--there was no problem. All of a sudden Trump goes into dictator bullly mode and attempts to avenge himself with government institutions.

He's just piling up reasons to get rid of him. Self-enrichment, obstruction of justice, multiple sexual assaults and abuse of power. Extreme abuse of power.

He better pray that the Dems don't take over congress in the midterms, because he will be a goner. They will not hesitate to impeach him.

A lot of these judges need to go and laws need to be written to unseat them if they are going against the peoples best interests. I think some measure of immunity to fad whims of the masses is good but they are a little bit too comfortable there.

What decade is this poster living in. AT&T broke up into the Baby Bells. Those in turn merged and became others.

Verizon started with NY and NE Telephone. Then dumped all of the land lines.

But to the merger.

Direct TV got worser and worser after AT&T bought Direct TV out.

President Roosevelt (the first one) broke up all of the big monopolies. Now we are slowly putting them back together again. Different name but same concept.

Keep 'em small I say !

One AT&T Cable/TV/Internet Bill: $340.29. Do you believe they will jack all the services up after they merge?

They are companies with two different lines of business which is why DOJ will lose. AT&T is a company with a distribution network. TW is a company that develops content. This merger almost mirrors the Comcast/NBC merger, which of course was approved.
