Some pondered whether Time Warner would have to sell off CNN to get the deal approved.

“If AT&T had to spin off CNN to get the deal approved, I suspect they would be willing to do so,” said analyst Craig Moffett of MoffettNathanson.

Can CNN exist on it's own? They may be sold for parts!

Where is that crying girl?

Of course the Lying Leftist NYPost gets it wrong. I was CNN reporter Jim Acosta who was pitching a hissy fit and “tirade”.

This deal needs to be stopped period. One hope I have for Trump is that finally we’ll see Anti-Trust Laws enforced again.

Tirade??

It was the CNN reporter, Acosta, who went on a tirade. Trump was cool and in control.

I’m sick of Hollywood inserting CNN into all their films. Dr. Strange is the latest example. Spoiled the film for me because, for one reason, reminded me of star Tilda Swinton’s past tirades against Bush when he was in office, then she ends up winning an Oscar from the Hollywood crowd, obviously her nasty anti-Bush comments helped raise her profile with leftie Oscar voters.

NONE of the Leftist Stations would survive without Bundling by Cable Companies.

Antitrust laws provide the ideal tool for Trump to cut the corrupt media monopoly down to size.

Yup. His Telecommunications Act of 1996 was probably one of the most corrupt pieces of legislation to ever move through Washington (which is really saying something).
