I can't think of a defensible reason why this deal would require the divestiture of the Turner networks. Right now AT&T doesn't have any TV networks.

So now we know how he'll react to yesterday's elections: By bragging about his hyuuuuuuge electoral college victory a year ago.

You forgot that he will also brag about the size of the crowds at his inauguration.

They own DirecTV. It's pretty much the same reason they shot down the Comcast/TWC merger.

So, is it too much for me to hope that Roy Moore is elected and then immediately impeached. Third time's the charm.

I saw someone on Twitter joke that Moore wasn't a hypocrite since he had dedicated his career to stopping consenting adults from having sex how they wanted to.

TWC and Comcast are both cable providers. A better analogy is Comcast and NBC.

Nope. DirecTV owns Audience Network as well as a stable of sports networks (all starting with the word "Roots").

Audience Network has such a miniscule share that it's not really relevant for anti-competitive analysis. And Comcast had some tiny content channels before they bought NBC as well. Especially compared to something like Disney/Fox.
