XM Merger With Sirius Approved

The Justice Department’s antitrust division said yesterday that the buyout of XM Satellite Radio by Sirius would not hurt competition or consumers.

OK, OK. I get it.

Of course creating a de facto monopoly in satellite services won’t hurt satellite services competitors. There are no satellite services competitors.

  1. Well, as a consumer, I can say the merger won’t hurt me at all. Except, well, I don’t actually subscribe to sat. radio, nor do I ever intend to. MP3 players give me all I need for my digital pleasure … assuming I can figure out how to get my iPod to vibrate.
