  • Trump’s Warning: An AT&T/Time Warner Merger, Dangerous

    The Huffington Post ^ | September 21, 2017 | Ken Blackwell
    (Snip) Unfortunately, the power of these biased corporate media giants may only get more powerful under the pending mega-merger of AT&T and CNN’s parent company, Time Warner. President Trump said last year that this deal would put “too much concentration of power in the hands of too few” and promised to block it; yet there’s been dangerously little attention paid to a corporate marriage that would make two massive global media conglomerates even bigger.  Grassroots conservatives remain hopeful that President Trump remembers his campaign pledge to stop this deal. (Snip) These companies already have tremendous power and influence – and a combination...

    EXCLUSIVE: There are rumblings at the highest executive levels that AT&T’s top executives are considering divesting some Time Warner assets — including news organization CNN and celebrity gossip site TMZ — after they merge. AT&T expects the Justice Department to approve its $85 billion acquisition of Time Warner, and for the deal to close, by year end. The telco has already named longtime exec John Stankey to be CEO of AT&T’s media properties. He’s leading the Time Warner Merger Integration Planning Team, working with Time Warner CEO Jeff Bewkes. CBS has long had its eye on CNN. The broadcast company’s...

    CNN and celebrity gossip site TMZ could potentially be sold off after AT&T merges with Time Warner, a report claims. The $85 billion deal, which was announced in October, will give AT&T control of Time Warner properties including CNN, HBO and TMZ, as well as the film studio Warner Bros and other coveted media assets. Sources told Deadline that AT&T executives are considering getting rid of some of Time Warner's assets, including the cable news network and the celebrity gossip site. 'They don't want any controversy,' one source said of AT&T. AT&T reportedly expects the deal to be approved and...

    A federal judge has dismissed a class-action racial discrimination lawsuit filed by current and former black employees of Time Warner, owner of Turner networks including CNN, TNT and TBS. U.S. District Court Judge William Duffey of the Northern District of Georgia said in Tuesday’s order that the employees didn’t meet legal standards to prove “a pattern and practice of intentional race discrimination.” The lawsuit filed in December claimed a pattern of discrimination against black employees, particularly men, in evaluations, pay and promotions. …

    President Donald Trump's threat to block the $85 billion deal between AT&T and Time Warner has yet to materialize. Time Warner chief executive Jeff Bewkes even scoffed at the notion back in May.

  • TimeWarner May Have to Shut Down CNN Before the Merger of TimeWarner and ATT Takes Place

    There is an interesting deep story to the internet war on CNN. TimeWarner is the parent of CNN. But TimeWarner is much, much more than CNN. The corporate giant also owns HBO, TNT, the film studio Warner Bros, DC Comics, (10% of Hulu), Time Inc., AOL, Time Warner Cable, Warner Books and Warner Music Group--among various other media entities. The theme that ties them all together is that they are all businesses oriented toward the consumer. That is, the types of businesses that are vulnerable from many directions to the type of internet attack that has been launched against CNN....

    According to Senator Ted Cruz, CNN’s threats to dox the Reddit user who created the Trump wrestling CNN video could be a violation of Georgia law. CNN discovered the identity of the Reddit user who made the video and essentially threatened to reveal his identity if he continued to post unsavory content. Cruz said if CNN tracked down the Reddit user through his IP address and then used that information to threaten him, they could be in violation of a Georgia law. CNN headquarters are located in Atlanta, GA. The GA Code explains that someone could be guilty of “Theft...

    Following the revelation that CNN published fake news about the Trump administration and its alleged ties to Russia after an investigation by Breitbart News, the next head to roll at the embattled media company may be President Jeff Zucker. “AT&T will look to ‘neutralize’ CNN President Jeff Zucker after it buys Time Warner,” the New York Post reported on Wednesday. “The buzz from the telecommunications giant comes as CNN is being slammed for highly publicized missteps, according to three sources familiar with the thinking of AT&T brass,” the Post reported. In the wake of Breitbart’s investigation, CNN issued the following...

    Note: For simplicity’s sake, whenever the term “reshoots” is used, unless otherwise stated, assume that it’s a catchall term that includes pick-ups, additional photography, and the standard reshooting of scenes.In weeks past, there have been some rumors regarding the state of the DC Extended Universe — namely, the status of their upcoming team-up film, Justice League. Extensive reshoots and additionally photography have, perhaps wrongly, been correlated with bad movies, and while reshoots have been a standard practice for films in the past decade or so, it still seems to give audiences some concern. Now, a report from Batman-On-Film seems to...

    In recent months, President Donald Trump has taken pointed aim at CNN over what he feels is the network’s unfair and hostile coverage of him. Last month, following the cable news channel’s report on him being presented with a two-page synopsis on the infamous Russia dossier during an intel briefing, Trump started labeling CNN “fake news.” Well, it now appears that the Trump administration is taking its complaints to CNN’s corporate bosses. According to the Wall Street Journal, Trump’s son-in-law and advisor Jared Kushner met with a Time Warner executive to protest CNN’s reporting. In a meeting at the White...

    Some pondered whether Time Warner would have to sell off CNN to get the deal approved. “If AT&T had to spin off CNN to get the deal approved, I suspect they would be willing to do so,” said analyst Craig Moffett of MoffettNathanson. “As far as BuzzFeed, which is a failing pile of garbage, writing it, I think they’re going to suffer the consequences,” Trump said.

    Time Warner CEO Jeff Bewkes said Tuesday that the real threat to the First Amendment in the 2016 election had come from Democrats, not from Donald Trump — and that the media had largely missed the threat because of their own partisan bias. Speaking to the Business Insider IGNITION conference in New York City, Bewkes pointed out that the Democratic Party “had a campaign plank to change the First Amendment, and they were doing it in the guise of campaign finance reform.” Indeed, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton ran on an explicit pledge to change the First Amendment in order...

    Time Warner CEO Jeff Bewkes told Business Insider's Henry Blodget on Tuesday that the "real threat" to the First Amendment did not come from President-elect Donald Trump during the campaign, but rather from the Democratic Party. Bewkes was speaking at Business Insider's annual IGNITION conference, during which he was asked about Trump's frequent campaign threats to open up libel laws. Trump has also set his sights on Bewkes' own media property, CNN, which he consistently ridiculed along the campaign trail and even after Election Day. "Do you worry about that at all?" Blodget asked. Bewkes said he didn't "think that's...

COO Peter Chernin or current CNN chief Jeff Zucker don’t replace outgoing Time Warner CEO Jeff Bewkes, Zucker could be tapped by Rupert Murdoch’s sons to replace Roger Ailes atop Fox News.

    US telecoms giant AT&T has announced that it will buy entertainment group Time Warner for nearly $86bn (£70bn). The deal - one of the biggest this year - still needs approval from regulators. If the takeover goes through, it would combine AT&T's distribution network with content from the Warner Brothers film studios and the cable TV channels HBO and CNN. AT&T's chairman described it as "a perfect match" but critics say it concentrates too much media power. 'Complementary strengths' The deal is likely to be closely scrutinised by US antitrust regulators. AT&T is already the third largest cable TV provider...

    ATT was in my neighborhood today promoting U-verse. I haven't had any experience with it and have been on Time Warner for a long time. Is Uverse any better than Time Warner? Time Warner over the past year has been a disappointment in a lot of areas. I'm more interested in data and internet than TV and plan to keep the POTS line. ATT offers a dedicated 24 meg line. TWC is 20ish and a lot of times I don't think it's that much. It's probably shared through the area. I've run speed tests and got anywhere from 15-19.
