Senate Judiciary Hearing on AT&T / T-Mobile Merger

The hearing is Wednesday morning.  The Witness List suggests that the hearing will primarily serve as an opportunity for the merging parties, rivals, other interested parties, and lets not forget the Senators, to restate their positions “for the record.”  And while I get where the Committee is going with the “Humpty Dumpty” title, “the T-1000 of corporations” is much funnier (see video).

Here is the hearing notice:

The Senate Committee on the Judiciary, Subcommittee on Antitrust, Competition Policy and Consumer Rights, has scheduled a hearing entitled “The AT&T/T-Mobile Merger: Is Humpty Dumpty Being Put Back Together Again?” for Wednesday, May 11, 2011 at 10:15 a.m. in Room 226 of the Dirksen Senate Office Building.

Chairman Kohl to preside.

By order of the Chairman.
