AT&T really likes Sprint + Clearwire

I love this …

It’s the Larry David rule of life – you just want things to work for you, regardless of how much something contradicts your stated opinions. AT&T is not opposed to the Sprint / Clearwire merger, they just want everyone to have fun dealing with their lawyers and the FCC.

In this case, AT&T claims that it isn’t really opposed to the merger, but it’s filing opposition papers because it feels that Sprint and Clearwire aren’t receiving the same level of scrutiny that AT&T received in its mergers, specifically with regards to it spectrum holdings. This seems like grasping at straws by AT&T just to throw some sort of extra paperwork roadblock in the path of the new Clearwire, which is an obvious competitor.[Techdirt]
