Dear AT&T

Dear AT&T,

You had some serious cajones to try to argue that the merger would create jobs, while out of the other side of your mouth saying the merger would create huge efficiencies. Everyone that knows anything about business knows that "efficiencies" from a merger means cutting redundant jobs. To publicly argue both things at the same time is ballsy.

But now you have the audacity to argue against government transparency?

Seriously?

Great point,man. Now let's wait for the spectacle when the republicans in the senate jump into an impassionate defense of poor defenseless AT&T.

Are you kidding me ? The republicans in the senate are you serious ? It does not matter if you are a republican or a democrat they are the same dang thing ? If anything would it matter considering the senate majority is not republican.

And yet I worry about it coming down to money greasing the right hands.

And perhaps someone at the FCC decided to release the report precisely to make sure that wouldn't happen. Having this public makes it harder for the FCC to backtrack, and makes it harder for the DoJ to justify allowing the deal. Anyone that might be corrupted into allowing the merger will now find it much harder, with these detailed findings in the open.

Agreed. Let's hope it works exactly like you say.

Rich,

I would take exception to qualifying a draft report as "detailed findings". Is there an available link to the full FCC report?

Many of us forum members have made a purpose(almost obsessive posts), to try and convey our messege, that AT&T has been trying to manipulate the entire industry today, yesterday and since its birth.

Some of us have referrenced facts and transcripts of AT&T's history on how they have continued their quest to monopolize this industry. From 1950's-1960's, this company had control of 300 Billion dollars in revenue in todays value. A monsterous monopoly of telecommunications. Many felt it was a natural monopoly. It all became clear that this monopoly was unacceptable and an end was put to it by eventually breaking up the caos.

Many only look at AT&T as having good service and don't care about the technicalities. They completely ignore the ...

“I hope we shall… crush in its birth the aristocracy of our moneyed corporations which dare already to challenge our government in a trial of strength, and bid defiance to the laws of our country.” ~ Thomas Jefferson


“There is an evil which ought to be guarded against in the indefinite accumulation of property from the capacity of holding it in perpetuity by corporations.
