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

Smeap is the honk of a flamingo. Smeap was also at least once, a storybook land at the weird intersection of TV ads and the worlds they seem to inhabit. It was a place where wars were fought over sodas, and talking polar bears had very good reasons to guard soda machines. It was a place where rainbow color candies were harvested for electric power. It was a place where a prairie dog might move to big city inhabited mostly by Pink Flamingos to follow her dream to be private investigator, only to get slowly entangled in the seedy underbelly of crime and prohibited soda trading of the Neon Flamingos and their syndicate. Social media at times lately feels like it has become almost entirely seedy underbelly with very little upside. Maybe it needs more storybook worlds.
