SENATORS CALLS FOR ANTITRUST HEARINGS ON THE DISNEY/FOX DEAL
Senator Amy Klobuchar, the top Democrat on the Senate antitrust panel, urged the subcommittee on Friday to hold a hearing on Walt Disney plan to buy a number of Twenty-First Century Fox businesses. “I’m concerned about the impact of this transaction on American consumers,” Klobuchar said in a statement.
“As the ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Antitrust, I have asked Senator (Mike) Lee, who has worked closely with me in this area in the past, and (Judiciary Committee) Chairman (Chuck) Grassley to schedule a hearing on the proposed merger,” she said.
Lee, who chairs the subcommittee, has asked his staff to take a close look at the proposed deal, Conn Carroll, a spokesman for Lee, said. ”A hearing has not been ruled out.”http://www.firstcomicsnews.com/senators-calls-for-antitrust-hearings-on-the-disney-fox-deal/http://www.firstcomicsnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/disney-logo-600x257.pnghttp://www.firstcomicsnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/disney-logo-150x64.pngMovie & TV NewsNews
