Story here.

It's being reported today that the DOJ is going to block the proposed merger between Time Warner and AT&T, unless Time-Warner divests itself of CNN.

We definitely need to break up the major media empires. I expect that the Disney empire will eventually be broken up on monopolistic grounds, in the same vein as Standard Oil or the old AT&T company.

Hmmm... I wonder if Donald Trump is in the market for a crappy news outlet that needs rehabilitation?

Doesn't seem to be in the offing as Disney is looking to buy 21st Century Fox.

On a side note, Standard Oil is mostly back together now since the Exxon-Mobil merger.

ATS should buy it.

it would be the most honest news network covering sasquatch sightings and alien abductions on the planet.

CNN should merge with Al Jazeera. They will be a perfect fit for each other.

If the goal is to prevent monopolies, I hope they also take action to insure that some other huge group doesn't grab it, instead. Otherwise, what's the point?

Good lord, could you imagine some of the resident ATS personalities as new CNN anchors?


Maybe Augustus and DB could do a comedic news hour.

Please don't encourage those two.

They can find plenty of trouble all by themselves.

I'd trust Al Jazeera English before I'd trust Fox.

Pretty much exactly how it would work minus the inevitable sexual harassment claims and drunken on-air profanity.

It's a vast right-wing conspiracy involving Trump supporters colluding with Russians.

Obviously.
