Strange that monopoly laws don't effect tv stations like ESPN


@Red It's part of why Disney didn't get any of the Fox TV Channels though when they got nearly everything else. They weren't sure the FCC and FTC would let them merge ESPN and Fox Sports Network. Albeit, the main part was they were sure that the FCC had to stop an ABC and (antenna) Fox channel merger by law. Sports was borderline.

(The remaining part being Fox News is a very profitable evil and was never for sale.)

@max that's very interesting. I love hearing about major company mergers getting cock blocked
