No, it's not.

There is absolutely NO REASON why this deal would cause the DOJ to sue.

Comcast's acquisition of NBC/Universal didn't make a peep.

The DOJ won't win the case, even if they try. There's no precedent for suing such a merger.

Ted Turner no longer owns Turner Broadcasting, as he sold it years ago to Time-Warner.

Turner Broadcasting owns CNN and its parent company is Time-Warner.

I think you'll find that 2018 will largely be about a lot of change that doesn't follow the template of precedence.

Where's Loon, this one needs to go in my predictions file.

It’s cherry picking at its finest.

FWIW, the CEO of AT&T says he’s not selling Direct TV or Turner.

I still think this deal gets done.

My biggest fear is AT&T screwing up HBO.

AT&T has talked about spinning off CNN off this deal for a while.

Propaganda minister of the GOP...Roger Ailes. The legacy of Roger Goebbles Ailes; Reagan Killed the “Fairness Doctrine” that mandated Political news be “fair and balanced” that both sides had their views said on the National news.

Why did he ban certain news outlets from the USA when he met with the Russian? Why he is more worried about Leaks and Loyalty then the actual truth..a corporate fascist?

Yes. The MSM is the propaganda arm of the DNC. But, you already knew that.

CNN should at least be honest about what it is.

This is CNN, the #1 network for advancing left wing bullshit as "news."
