AT&T CEO says open to litigation on Time Warner deal

Rupert Murdoch 'interested in buying CNN' after reports Trump administration may force AT&T to sell it

Rupert Murdoch twice discussed CNN with AT&T CEO- and 'offered to BUY it'

In 2014, Twenty-First Century Fox proposed buying Time Warner for $80bn.

The revelation of Trump's son-in-law controversial comments came days after the reports that the US Department of Justice was forcing Time Warner to sell CNN before eventually approving the telecom giant's merger with AT&T.

"I have never been instructed by the White House on this or any other transaction under review by the antitrust division", Makan Delrahim said in a statement Thursday.

This week, Delrahim and other agency officials told AT&T that the deal as it now stands raises anti-competition concerns, and that the company will need to shed some assets, perhaps either Turner or DirecTV.

"I do feel you should have as many news outlets as you can - especially since so many are fake", he told reporters on Air Force One. The move is likely to draw criticism and could be seen as political payback, since US President Donald Trump has repeatedly criticized CNN for its coverage of him, calling it "fake news".

The Trump administration eliminated temporary legal residency and deportation relief for thousands of immigrants from Nicaragua. No matter what, I'm not leaving" said Osario, who has been in the USA for 26 years, the last 19 as a TPS holder.

"I did make a comment as to what I think", Trump acknowledged, appearing to reference previous remarks he had made on the campaign trail criticizing the AT&T deal.

Stephenson twice said the cable channel was not on the table.

AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson has denied that his company would ever sell CNN, while Vanity Fair reported some in media are speculating Murdoch has been quietly urging Trump to tank the merger in revenge for Time Warner declining an $80 billion buyout offer in 2014.

Raj Shah, a White House spokesman, said in a separate statement that Trump "did not speak with the Attorney General about this matter, and no White House official was authorized speak with the Department of Justice on this matter".

The newspaper's source in the White House said that this was meant merely as a joke and Kushner did not mean to be taken seriously. He said the company had been ready to go to court the day the deal was announced.
