For the record: "As an example of the power structure I'm fighting, AT&T is buying Time Warner and thus CNN, a deal we will not approve in my administration because it's too much concentration of power in the hands of too few." -- Donald Trump, 10/22/16 From The Wall Street Journal: "The Justice Department is laying the groundwork for a potential lawsuit challenging AT&T Inc.’s planned acquisition of Time Warner Inc. if the government and companies can’t agree on a settlement, according to people familiar with the matter. "The department’s antitrust division is preparing for litigation in case it decides to sue to block the deal, these people said." From Recode Daily: “Will Donald Trump’s justice department really sue to stop the AT&T-Time Warner deal? Or does it just want some leverage? It’s a very expensive question.” Ummm ... what to think?
