I sense desperation.

Does AT&T really think people will believe that destroying one of the four major wireless carriers will somehow lead to more jobs? That's right up there with "cutting taxes will increase revenue" on the BS meter.
LOL how ridiculous! everyone knows we need to slash all the entitlement programs AND abolish all taxes before we can ever make a dent in the national debt...
the 4th major wireless provider will be "destroyed" if at&t buys them or not. AT&T is simply saying 5,000 more jobs here and they're keeping as much of tmo's customer service centers as possible.

AT&T Should bring back those 5000 jobs anyways...

Just yesterday, AT&T announced that it would return a net 5,000 jobs to the U.S. on completion of the merger. That is the kind of corporate responsibility that more employers in the U.S. should demonstrate if we are ever to have an economy recovery.

Why not just bring them back merger or no merger... if they are truly concerned about America and the economy, bring back those jobs no matter what. It isn't as if these 5000 jobs will put AT&T into the red. Oh, that's right... they don't really care.

What they're trying to pull here is similar to a retail store raising it's prices, then offering a "sale" as an enticement. Umm, I don't buy into that B.S.

CWA + TechFreedom + AT&T = Payola

Sounds like payola to me!
These motherf'ers never consider for consumers.

My Thoughts...

"...the DOJ has put consumers' interests first."

I'm pretty sure they mean "the DOJ has put OUR interests first" there. I think that listening to these companies go on and on petitioning the government to stop their competition for them is getting more than irritating.

...including consumer choice and innovation."

Now, how does that make sense? What is innovation if it is not creating something new. competing differently or figuring out a way to overcome obstacles?

The definition of innovation: "A new method, idea, product, etc..."

How is this blocking innovation? By definition innovation requires something NEW, something fresh. Blocking this merger stifles innovation in eve...

Think Tanks

Are there any useful ones anymore? They all just seem to be owned by these companies or paid heavily to be so biased.

Att can create those jobs without T-Mobile. They can expand their LTE network to 97% of Americans with the spectrum they have!! And it will take only 3.8 billion and not 39 billion! Good move DOJ!!! MaBell please go away now!
Amen to that mdana07! It's crazy to see MaBell trying to rebuild what was broken up back in the 80's. 30 years removed isn't long enough of a time span for people to forget their Monopoly ways of the past.
are you the one that creating those new jobs?
ATT only bringing back jobs from oversee or creating new jobs ONLY if merger go through.
no merger, they not going to creating new jobs!

Their AT&T paycheck must have gotten lost in the mail.

That or AT&T forgot to pay them off.

Either way, they'll probably still find a way to make this deal go through.
More like greasecheck but they will not give up until the fat government official sings.
