Is Trump using the DOJ to crush CNN? Probably not

Is Trump using the DOJ to crush CNN? Probably not

"We are prepared to litigate now", Stephenson told CNBC on the sidelines of the New York Times Dealbook conference. AT&T representatives then proposed selling the network, which officials said wouldn't necessarily solve the theorized harm to the public, the DOJ sources added.

American multinational conglomerate AT&T has ruled out selling CNN to secure the U.S. government's approval of the telecommunications giant's proposed $85 billion merger with Time Warner.

Shares of Time Warner fell about 6 per cent to $89.00, while AT&T shares fell 0.2 per cent before climbing 1.16 per cent to $33.46. It would also mean that AT&T could now harness Time Warner's entertainment expertise. "Beyond that, the Department does not comment on any pending investigation". Another way to resolve the concerns, the Department of Justice told AT&T, is to sell off DirecTV, according to the source. Sources have told NBC News that AT&T previously had offered to sell off CNN, but was told that won't be enough.

"The Department of Justice, in particular, has an obligation to ensure "equal justice under law".

Martellus Bennett claimed off waivers by New England Patriots
That deal contained a signing bonus of $6.3m, of which Bennett was to receive $2.1m at the beginning of each season. The outspoken tight end won a Super Bowl with the Patriots previous year , his only season in New England.

But on Wednesday morning, AT&T said the timing of the deal's closing is now "uncertain".

Makan Delrahim, who took up the reins at the antitrust division in September after he was confirmed by the Senate, has signaled he isn't a fan of settlements that force the Justice Department into ongoing monitoring of companies' behavior.

Cartoon Network, TBS, TNT and Turner Classic Movies are all part of Turner Broadcasting, a division of Time Warner. Negotiations between the companies and the Department of Justice have turned so contentious that now both sides are arguing publicly over what the dispute is even about. Many criticized the move, stating it would lead to a concentration of media power.

Senator Elizabeth Warren, a Massachusetts Democrat who delayed Delrahim's confirmation for weeks, asked the antitrust chief last month to recuse himself from the review because of those comments.

Putin and Trump will Meet Tomorrow
Russian Federation has denied any state-sponsored system of doping. Dmitry Ushakov told state news agency Itar-Tass on Thursday.

USA antitrust regulators and AT&T Inc sparred on Wednesday over whether the wireless carrier would be required to sell Time Warner Inc's CNN cable network as a condition of approval of its deal to buy the media company.

Raj Shah, a White House spokesman, said in a separate statement that Trump "did not speak with the Attorney General about this matter, and no White House official was authorized speak with the Department of Justice on this matter". He's looking for ways to remedy the competitive issues posed by the combination of AT&T's vast communications network and Time Warner's media empire.

Democratic lawmakers and advocacy groups have been ringing alarm bells about the potential for political interference in what's supposed to be an independent antitrust review of the deal. "The Justice Department appears to be doing its job", he said in a statement.
