AT&T Prevails Against DOJ In Long-Running Legal Battle Over Time Warner Deal

In their 35-page ruling, Judges Judith W. Rogers, Robert L. Wilkins and David B.

In this evidentiary context, the government’s objections that the district court misunderstood and misapplied economic principles and clearly erred in rejecting the quantitative model are unpersuasive.” – Dade Hayes, Deadline Hollywood » https://ift.tt/2SuWOM6

Cable sector set to weather a US recession

[MoffettNathanson] said that despite recent market volatility, cable stocks have mostly narrowly outperformed expectations, with the exception of DISH Network (the satellite company has underperformed in both the first and second half of the year).
