    Wow, "unpersuasive." That's what I thought the first time.

    The DOJ shouldn't wave the white flag and go all the way to the supreme court don't let the evil empire that is AT&T win fight. The judges clearly don't know the law.

    Or maybe the DOJ is taking the wrong approach.

    The Republican DOJ was ready to approve the merger until they were told not to. It's all documented.

    This deal is no worse than the Comcast take over of NBC. In fact that deal was probably a bigger issue.

    I agree, and the DOJ backed off that investigation as well. This happened once Sessions was gone.

    New Yorker Magazine now reports that Trump ordered the DOJ to stop the AT&T Time Warner Merger:

    Something AT&T alleged at the start of the case. After they contributed millions to his campaign and even hired Michael Cohen to help with the merger.

    Here is another reason why the AT&T/ Warner deal is getting attention again and its for CNN's Hiring practices.

    The National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) said Tuesday that it would place CNN on a "special media monitoring list," citing a lack of black representation among the network's leadership ranks.

    NABJ said in a statement that its preliminary research showed that CNN has no black employees reporting to CNN President Jeff Zucker. It also showed that the news organization has no black executive producers as well as no black vice presidents or senior vice presidents on the news side.

    CNN disputed the group's finding that there are no black vice presidents on the news side, according to NABJ. But the news network did not provide the name or position of the vice president or vice presidents, NABJ said.

    The NABJ said a four-person delegation sought to meet with Zucker but that the CNN president refused to do so because of "a personal issue between CNN and NABJ’s Vice President-Digital Roland Martin" stemming from Martin's participation in a 2016 town hall with then-Democratic presidential candidates Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton.

    Now the WH is refusing to co-operate with an investigation into the DOJ case against this merger:
