Re: Stopped Clocks Hope those folks aren't expecting too much. Historically most of the conditions affixed to these deals are proposed by the companies themselves and don't really seem to do all that much. Meanwhile, still not sure that buying a satellite TV provider and a mega-broadcaster just as ratings are dipping will be the greatest long term play, but we'll see.

Re: Stopped Clocks I think that's probably right, but people seem to be expecting strigent terms and conditions already.

Re: Stopped Clocks I'm very, very curious if the Clinton camp approves this deal. The very fact that it's being announced seems to suggest that AT&T thinks it will.

Re: dumbass Well yeah!


That would still probably indicate a large defeat for Trump though, as I understand it.

Re: dumbass The other side of this coin is that he's ONLY down by 12% to 20% among women, despite everything that has transpired.

Re: dumbass Note: I didn't even bother to think about Trump as president at this point. He's down 12 to 20% with women in the latest polls. He's got the gall but he hasn't got the numbers.

Re: Your take on the matter I think it'll go through, probaly late 2017, but with a lot of scrutiny first. Bet the feds are going to want to ensure that other players get fair access to the films, TV etc that Time Warner produces. How's that done? Ah, the devils in the details, eh?

Re: dumbass Fortunately, the discussion isn't relevant because the president cannot unilaterally block this merger. Maybe basic civics tests for candidates should be part of the vetting process in the future.

Re: dumbass For as much free media exposure as Trump has gotten, it's amazing he would complain. It's really hard to believe anything this guy says anymore anyways. He's just talking because he knows it works a lot better than campaign ads.

Stopped Clocks Clinton & Kaine understand that the deal has to be approved or rejected based on the merits.

Trump's reaction, meanwhile, is based entirely on his suspicion that there is some Vast Left Wing Media Conspiracy that is nefariously rigging the election by, I dunno, accurately reporting what he says and does or somesuch.

Once again, Trump's policiy position is based entirely on what's good or bad for Trump. It has nothing to do with the country or just with business.
