They do it while we're distracted
« on: January 30, 2017, 01:37:05 pm »
They do it while we're distracted, so we won't complain that much. It's an old trick. Timing is key. Things that may make us feel uneasy are announced during major look-at-me-ings. Some will still notice and feel uneasy, some might even loudly oppose, but no critical mass will be reached. In 2009, I felt quite uneasy when Time Warner announced their takeover of DC Comics. I mean how could they, seriously. I felt sad that day.

Today I learned that AT&T is buying Time Warner. Of course this was announced in the middle of the U.S. Presidency Death Match Extravaganza, and of course it went under my radar until today. Look at the assets already owned by Time Warner, which will now be swallowed by AT&T.

I'm feeling quite uneasy right now.

You have to look on the bright side...think of all of the potential Batman/loony toons crossovers

That would be great. However, I wouldn't be able to legally watch it, because my ISP is not AT&T.
