Bernie Sanders is trying to single handedly kill AT&T’s $85 billion purchase of Time Warner

Sen. Bernie Sanders called on the Justice Department Wednesday to block the $85 billion AT&T-Time Warner merger.

The Vermont politician warned in a letter to the department’s antitrust division that the combination could result in a “gross concentration of power” in news media, and suggested that blocking the deal would help “preserve our democratic discourse and open competitive markets for speech and commerce.”

“This proposed merger is just the latest effort to shrink our media landscape, stifle competition and diversity of content, and provide consumers with less while charging them more,” Sanders said.
