FCC blasts AT&T for lies about T-Mobile merger

http://j.mp/vXAh1a  (CNN)

    "The agency also found AT&T's claims that the deal would create
     U.S.  jobs "to be inconsistent with AT&T's internal analyses."
     In other words, the FCC thinks AT&T was lying to the public about
     the benefits of the merger.  The FCC released the report even
     though, in a surprise move, AT&T (T, Fortune 500) said on
     Thanksgiving that it is no longer seeking the regulator's
     approval for the merger. Many analysts say they believe that
     AT&T's withdrawal was in part an attempt to prevent the FCC from
     going public with its reasons for opposing the deal."
