The U.S. Department of Justice sued Monday to prevent the $85.4 billion takeover of Time Warner by AT&T. The merger “would greatly harm American consumers,” said Makan Delrahim, head of the antitrust division, adding it would lead to higher monthly television bills and “fewer of the newer, emerging innovative options that consumers are beginning to enjoy.” AT&T begged to differ. David R. McAtee II, senior EVP and general counsel, called the DOJ lawsuit “a radical and inexplicable departure from decades of antitrust precedent,” and said AT&T expects the Court to reject the government’s claims.

Before taking his position in September, Delrahim said last year the merger did not appear to pose “a major antitrust problem.” However, during recent talks he urged the companies to sell Turner Broadcasting or DirecTV, which AT&T declined to do. Although President Trump’s objections to the deal (and fury at Turner’s “fake news” net CNN) has some questioning whether the lawsuit is politically motivated, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Monday that she is “not aware of any specific action” taken by the White House regarding the matter.

Charlie Rose, co-anchor of CBS This Morning and host of PBS’s Charlie Rose the Week, has been accused of sexual misconduct by 8 women, the Washington Post reports. The women, age 21-37, either worked for Rose’s PBS show or aspired to between the late 1990s and 2011, said the Post, when they were subjected to unwanted sexual advances that included Rose making lewd phone calls, walking around naked and groping. “It is essential that these women know I hear them and that I deeply apologize for my inappropriate behavior,” responded Rose. “I am greatly embarrassed. I have behaved insensitively at times, and I accept responsibility for that, though I do not believe that all of these allegations are accurate. I always felt that I was pursuing shared feelings, even though I now realize I was mistaken…. All of us, including me, are coming to a newer and deeper recognition of the pain caused by conduct in the past, and have come to a profound new respect for women and their lives.”

PBS cut Al Franken from last night’s taped broadcast of the Kennedy Center’s ceremony honoring David Letterman. “PBS and WETA, the producing station, felt that the inclusion of Senator Franken in the broadcast at this time would distract from the show’s purpose as a celebration of American humor,” said PBS. The event was taped on October 22, 3 weeks before the former Saturday Night Live star was accused of, then apologized for, forcibly kissing and groping a woman during a 2006 USO tour.

Franken got more bad news when a woman recounted an incident to CNN during which the by-then-senator allegedly put his hand “full-fledged on my rear” as her husband took a photo of them in 2010, at the Minnesota State Fair. Franken said he takes thousands of pictures a year and doesn’t remember the encounter, but feels badly that the woman “came away from our interaction feeling disrespected.”
