the americans (cia, fbi, secret service, the pentagon, bush, chaney and currently obama) are the dirty biggest terrorist in the world, they represent a threat for the human peace, they must withdraw the troops in Afghnaistan. 30 billion dollar is a lot of money for finance this war.
Given the concentration content and distribution assets -why is little regulatory scrutiny expected? IMO this is a tipping point in negotiating power between smaller content providers and the “Network”. Potential for first subtle then egregious abuse is high. I doubt these sanguine reactions would prevail from Comcast and GE if it were Google buying CBS.
I sure don’t see any problems. Maybe Comcast can make something out of this aged network. I think GE thought they could make something good out of anything they touched. Reminds me of someone trying to rebuild a Yugo and thinking they would have a reliable car.
