Trump’s frequent bashing of Time Warner-owned CNN raised fears among the companies and some Democrats that his populist approach to the deal is fueled by animus toward the news network.

In the end, AT&T and Time Warner were able to win the case on antitrust grounds, successfully arguing that their so-called vertical merger – combining businesses that are not direct rivals – would not pose a significant harm to customers by raising prices or limiting options. Cox Communications and Dish-owned SlingTV told the judge that the merger would leave them unfairly hindered in negotiations for Time Warner programs.
