AG Jeff Sessions praised for AT&T-Time Warner antitrust scrutiny

Nov. 8, 2017, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement praising Attorney General Jeff Sessions for leading the charge to apply robust antitrust scrutiny to the AT&T-Time Warner merger by requiring either the sale of Directv or Turner Broadcasting, which includes CNN:

“Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ leadership of the Department of Justice has ensured that concerns over the AT&T-Time Warner merger are being heavily scrutinized. President Trump expressed these same concerns in Oct. 2016 when he was running for president and Attorney General Sessions is making certain that the proposed merger meets the letter and spirit of antitrust laws. The reported demand that either Turner Broadcasting, which includes CNN, or Directv be removed from the deal is reasonable in order to prevent to keep separate news content from dominant content delivery vehicles.”
