Merger Regulation 139, is the EU competition regulation that floored News Corp' last time, and unless they guaranteed their rival broadcasters F1 at a 'reasonable' price, would be their undoing again.

Do these clowns understand how TV works? The networks make shows or buy shows from production companies, and then they air them exclusively on network affiliates.

What the hell is this guy on about? We are going to stop TV networks from owning their own programming now?
