“The Great Escape for AT&T. It’s the power of monopoly. Ma Bell should have been dead and buried by now. They go into cable only a few years later to say ‘Oh my God, we made a mistake’ and then they sell it. They go into buying direct, they go into buying Time Warner with an idea, but certainly not fully-fledged. And then they go into basically, I think, hurting Time Warner assets. They drive Jeff Zucker out of the building basically… then they drive out all the talented people—not all of them, there are a few left, I guess—of Time Warner. And then they say, “Okay, never mind” and then they sell it. Although they didn’t sell it… AT&T basically bought Discovery, AT&T shareholders. But Discovery management, the scrappy Mr. Zaslav and basically [John} Malone and the new houses get to control it. It’s certainly in better hands, how could it have been in worse hands?” – Fox Broadcasting founder Barry Diller on CNBC talking about the WarnerMedia/Discovery deal
