AT&T & Comcast are already too big for their britches, I can’t give up on my cell phone or internet services, May be time to give up tv.
All this money spent on entertainment when people are homeless & hungry, it’s crazy.

Despite the politically motivated case by the Justice Department, this moved forward. It might have stood a chance IF Trump didn’t express his bias against the merger, but I doubt it. It was a vertical merger which isn’t as strong an antitrust case as a horizontal.
