AT&T Has Its Usual Game Plan in Place
AT&T Plans to Woo U.S. and Fight It. (The New York Times, 9/3/2011)
Excerpt: It will be a delicate balancing act for AT&T to both fight the Justice Department in court, as it has vowed to do, and to try to cozy up to the antitrust officials and regulators by promising to shed assets and to agree to monitoring and regulation that the antitrust division would be likely to require for the merger to proceed.
Continuing to game the system, in other words.
