AT&T Applauds Court Approval of Time Warner Deal

Dallas, TX...The following statement should be attributed to David McAtee, AT&T General Counsel: “We are pleased that, after conducting a full and fair trial on the merits, the Court has categorically rejected the government’s lawsuit to block our merger with Time Warner. We thank the Court for its thorough and timely examination of the evidence, and we compliment our colleagues at the Department of Justice on their dedicated representation of the government. We look forward to closing the merger on or before June 20 so we can begin to give consumers video entertainment that is more affordable, mobile, and innovative.”

This merger will only speed up more monopolies.
More monopolies means low or no competition.
This means higher prices for lower quality.

Conservatives are owned by corporations. They accept all what the corporations say and when in power cater to their every whim. They eat up corporate lies that are rolled out when they want to concentrate or monopolize sectors of the economy.
The banks, media, ag, and other sectors have been allowed to concentrate into huge monoliths such as the banks, they say they can't be regulated.

Compare Europe's broadband structure most countries have up to 100 companies for your cell phone and broadband, a family package for 6 has free phone, long distance, faster internet, all for about $70/month. This is what competition looks like and does.

The time to break up these monopolies can't come soon enough.

    Wait. Wait. Do you mean that the savings from merging two big companies into one will not be passed on to me, the consumer? I am so disappointed.
