    You're the loser. You like less competition now? This will be appealed.
    Liberals are a clear and present danger to our freedom and our society and our morals.

    Meanwhile, AT&T's lawyers pointed to uncontested big savings the merger would yield for the company and its customers: The government's own expert acknowledged that customers of AT&T's DirecTV and U-verse services would "pay a total of about $350 million less per year for their video distribution services."
    Captdon and Trump want Americans to pay more money for the services they use.

    Anytime you have owners connected like the media you only get half truths. If you think Fox wouldn't turn on Trump you are kidding yourself if they thought they could still get the views. They use the good cop bad cop on you. We don't have free press in America we have controlled press. It's never good no matter the cost when this happens.

    Just like right now old Tommy Roberson was just yanked out of prison and transferred to a mostly Muslim one this morning. You won't see the main stream media report this. The boy will be dead or abused so bad before they do and claim it was his fault.

    I believe that allowing less competition isn't freedom. You want to allow companies to cut competition. Let's have Google buy all of them and make you happy.
