    Good, we don't need any of these guys getting any bigger.

    They already control enough of the industry and if they get more will charge more and have worse service.

    Disney would have then basically controlled the comic industry.

    Lately all these companies are just buying other companies and getting bigger turning into one big monopoly.

    Obviously, FOX didn't put up enough cash, but I'm still surprised that they think they can buy TW. Time Warner may not be as big as Disney, but I always figured they were bigger than FOX...

    According to Fox News they already own wb. (It is a joke not real news) I wonder what will happen if Disney will buy them out. That is near monopoly.
