ALG praises DOJ consideration of antitrust lawsuit against AT&T-Time Warner merger

Nov. 2, 2017, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement praising reports that the Justice Department may be pursuing an antitrust lawsuit to stop the AT&T-Time Warner merger:

“Attorney General Jeff Sessions and the Justice Department are moving forward with keeping one of the Trump’s key campaign promises by carefully considering an antitrust lawsuit to block the AT&T-Time Warner merger. This is a move in the right direction and absolutely necessary to stop the merger. The immense power via consolidation that AT&T and Time Warner would wield post-merger threatens the First Amendment rights of every American. By considering this lawsuit against the AT&T-Time Warner merger, once again, Attorney General Jeff Sessions is doing the right thing for America.”
