DOJ to Review Comcast-NBC Universal Deal

Jan 7, 2010  •  Post A Comment

The Justice Department, in addition to the Federal Communications Commission, will review Comcast’s takeover of NBC Universal, sources told the Los Angeles Times.

The review process could have gone to the Federal Trade Commission.

Christine Varney, head of the antitrust division at Justice and a former partner at the D.C. law firm Hogan & Hartson, will oversee the review. One of her top aides, the paper notes, is Gene Kimmelman, the former head of the public interest group Consumers Union, where he was often a critic of media consolidation.

  2. Kudos to you! This is a really good blog here and I love your style of writing. How did you get so good at blogging?
