you’re telling me the Department of Justice and the F.C.C. are actually doing their jobs? I guess sometimes the D.O.J. has just gotta sue AT&T (the nation’s 2nd largest wireless provider) for trying to create a monopoly by purchasing T-Mobile (the nation’s 4th largest wireless provider). And of course, AT&T said it would fight the lawsuit (because the D.O.J. is stifling the free market, man). “We plan to ask for an expedited hearing so the enormous benefits of this merger can be fully reviewed,” the company said in a statement. “The D.O.J. has the burden of proving alleged anti-competitive effects and we intend to vigorously contest this matter in court.”
