Say No to Satellite TV Merger

If the regulatory authorities permit Dish Network to take over DirecTV, you may as well say goodbye to antitrust enforcement altogether. This deal would create an effective monopoly. It’s like allowing a merger of all cable-TV systems nationwide.

I’m a customer of Dish, which is a fine company. It’s competitive and pro-customer precisely because of the competition it faces. Take away its only serious satellite competitor? I don’t think so.

We’re heading toward a time, if this deal goes through, when we’ll have two choices in the information-delivery services on which we will rely. That’s not enough.
