Is Disney Becoming Too Powerful Of A Monopoly After Buying Fox And Star Wars?

Disney has announced plans to acquire 21st Century Fox in a deal expected to cost $52 billion pending approval by the authorities.

does this deal include Fox News? Maybe Disney will make it a more responsible news station.

No. Faux Noise and Fox Sports both stay desperate from Disney

After watching Episode VIII, it is apparent Disney is the true evil Empire in the universe.

No, that’s feminism invading Hollywood movies.

Is it Disney's fault that the other studios suck ?

What is the point of having competition authorities when they green light every takeover. Just a few companies own all the worlds media now. Like what happened to WWE when they bought up the competition, Disney quality will go drastically down the toilet as they are so big and own so much they have no competition now, nobody pushing them to up their game.

When studio start not making money because the majority of their films suck eventually they are gonna wanna sell & merge with someone else. Im guessing FOX is the exception here since the owner wants nothing to do with Movies / TV Shows anymore. But look at the WB they are up for sale & trying to merge with AT&T. FOX will merge with Disney & its only a matter of time Sony, Paramount, Lions Gate all do various merges. It is not Disneys fault that most studios suck now a days

People should probably learn what a monopoly is because there are still many, many, MANY other studios and distributors that make and are allowed to make movies. Not to mention, why would anyone complain if it means we get more good movies...
