"A black-owned media company sued AT&T for $10 billion this week, claiming AT&T shut it out from co-defendant DirecTV, for racial reasons, after buying the satellite company for $67 billion,"Matt Reynolds reported Thursday for Courthouse News Service.

"The National Association of African-American Owned Media claims in its Dec. 2 federal complaint that it represents 'at least one' African American-owned media company.

"It does not identify that company, but says it owns seven channels that produce original content, 32 television series, and a library of thousands of hours of programming.

"The association claims that AT&T and DirecTV refuse to carry the majority of its programming, except for one channel, for which they pay no carriage fees. . . ."
