They used to interrupt a live speech by Sanders to show an empty airport runway with a closed plane that Trump might be walking out of.

 

I fail to see exactly how that got The Pig elected. I have to chalk that up to the ignorant corn and bible belters.

Yup. Every time Trump would speak the media was there broadcasting it all. The media gave him more airtime then any other republican candidate.

 

They really did broadcast the image of an airplane sitting on the runway with nothing happening. blah blah Trump will get out...blah blah for 10 or 15 minutes

Why are liberals upset over this action by the DoJ, when they themselves proposed the same action, earlier this year?

Senate and House Democratic leaders today proposed new antitrust laws that could prevent many of the biggest mergers and break up monopolies in broadband and other industries.

 

"Right now our antitrust laws are designed to allow huge corporations to merge, padding the pockets of investors but sending costs skyrocketing for everything from cable bills and airline tickets to food and health care," US Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) wrote in a New York Times opinion piece. "We are going to fight to allow regulators to break up big companies if they’re hurting consumers and to make it harder for companies to merge if it reduces competition."

 

The "Better Deal" unveiled by Schumer and House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) was described in several documents that can be found in an Axios story.

 

The plan for "cracking down on corporate monopolies" lists five industries that Democrats say are in particular need of change, specifically airlines, cable and telecom, the beer industry, food, and eyeglasses. The Democrats' plan for lowering the cost of prescription drugs is detailed in a separate document.

 

In broadband, the market "is so concentrated that consumers rarely have any meaningful choice of provider, and prices are high enough to be prohibitive for many," the Democrats' plan says. "In over 50 million households, Americans have no choice at all for Internet provider[s offering broadband speeds]; they are forced to pay the exorbitant price their single carrier requires, if they get service at all… And the largest companies rank the lowest on customer satisfaction rankings—they don’t need to improve their service because there is no competition."

 

The biggest home Internet providers in the US are Comcast, Charter, AT&T, and Verizon. The Democrats didn't mention any Internet providers that they want broken up, but said they want to stop AT&T's proposed $85.4 billion purchase of programmer Time Warner. Democrats wrote:

Consolidation in the telecommunications is not just between cable or phone providers; increasingly, large firms are trying to buy up content providers. Currently, AT&T is trying to buy Time Warner. If AT&T succeeds in this deal, it will have more power to restrict the content access of its 135 million wireless and 25.5 million pay-TV subscribers. This will only enable the resulting behemoths to promote their own programming, unfairly discriminate against other distributors and their ability to offer highly desired content, and further restrict small businesses from successfully competing in the market.

 

Hypocrite much, libs?

Is it using the DOJ for retribution against CNN, or really anti trust?  The Pig loves big business mergers. Make America great. So why this? Very fishy.

 

Actually, it isn't AT&T merging with CNN...it is AT&T wanting to merge with Time-Warner, who owns CNN.

You PROVE just how f'ucking STUPID these s'hitstains are and watch, they will STILL INSIST that "Trump is doing something fishy" here.

 

The fact is, they are opposed to it as was the last administration and probably on good grounds to do so.

 

These s'hitstains should PROBABLY cheer the move, but because of their INNER HATE AND VILE, they just can't bring themselves to do it.
