If everyone throws a few pennies in a can, ATS can move in.

Epic programming,

Staring at rocks in the morning
Bigfooters
Aliens!!!
Mud Pit Power Hour
Military sightings
Paranoid Paranormal
Mom's Basement Survivor

CNN's ratings would have to improve over the fake garbage they play.



Who needs Crossfire when you could have The Political Mud Pit!

Only a few more months then until Herr Trump tells me what to think on his privately owned broadcast entity.

No more distracting FAKE NEWS.

TRUMP UBER ALLES.

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

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


Good for you! Then save yourself precious time and don't bother to watch Donna Brazile on Tucker Carlson (Fox News) this evening.

I'd rather have Al Jazeera headquartered in Atlanta than CNN. You're right...A.J. is more American friendly than CNN has ever been.

Nope, it's a standard procedure as explained.

It is done to prevent monopolies which it now appears you guys are totally down with if it would potentially mess with one of your sacred cows to not allow the monopoly?


I understand why it's being done. If you review what I wrote, you'll see that I never said that I disagreed with the move. However, in my personal opinion, I don't see how the overall merger benefits anyone but the big stockholders of each company. Every time one of these multi-billion mergers happens, the consumer is the big loser.

My point was that the head of the FCC has made, or intends to make, several moves that benefit these gigantic corporations at the expense of the consumer. Furthermore, it would not be out of the norm for Trump to take any opportunity to exact revenge on anyone he sees as an enemy.

I stopped watching all the television cable news outlets years ago. I read multiple news sources and cross-reference them against one another to attempt to derive the real story. In fact, somewhat ironically, I generally start here on ATS when I'm trying to get the scoop on breaking news.

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


Oh you can be sure this is that fat orange vindictive pustules idea, just like his benefactor in the Kremlin attacking the press to cover his crimes.

Oops. That didn't come out well did it?

The quote from AndyFromMichigan I was trying to respond to was

And he's already got one. Not that silly glorified video blog he has going, but the Simpson network or what-ever it is called is basically his money and is just waiting for him to leave office to be taken over full time.

What is the reasoning behind this?

Why does owning CNN break antitrust laws?

CNN is worth enough to be hit with a class-action discrimination lawsuit. Ironic for the network that continually blasts Republicans for not being "inclusive" enough.


The Atlanta lawyer whose racial discrimination suit against CNN was dismissed earlier this year says he is re-filing the class action case – this time with a new set of plaintiffs and even more alleged victims.

Some updates on this, AT&T is not planning on selling CNN:


AT&T will not sell CNN and it doesn't intend to sell key assets, either, to satisfy the Justice Department's demand for closing its $85 billion merger with Time Warner, AT&T Chief Executive Randall Stephenson said Thursday.

The Justice Department and AT&T are in the midst of a war of words over whether the Trump administration will approve the deal after a year of reviewing it. Stephenson said Thursday that if there is no progress on negotiations, the likely result will be the phone giant heading to court to protect its planned acquisition and prevent any divestiture.


AT&T Won't Sell CNN to Close Time Warner Deal

It looks like the DOJ was not demanding that AT&T sell CNN, it was just an offer that would quell antitrust concerns.


Yesterday, reports surfaced that the Department of Justice (DOJ) had requested a sale of either Turner Broadcasting, which owns CNN, or DirecTV before it would approve AT&T's acquisition of Time Warner. However, the agency said that it didn't request those sales, but merely presented them as options that would quell its antitrust concerns over the $85.4 million deal.


AT&T CEO: DOJ never demanded CNN sale in Time Warner Deal

This is a very good question, I found the answer to this when this thread first came out, but to be honest, I can't find it now - even after sifting through half a dozen news stories.

I believe the problem is that since AT&T is a service provider of media, by owning CNN, they might give CNN preferential treatment over other networks such as Fox News.

I heard Rupert Murdoch of Fox News called them and was showing interest in buying. Recent reports I read make it sound like it is unlikely CNN will be sold at all.
