Billionaire businessman Mark Cuban on Monday said he thinks Facebook and Google will be "big losers" of the Justice Department's intention to sue to block the proposed merger between Time Warner and AT&T.

DOJ officials on Monday said that they couldn't agree with the companies on an "adequate remedy" that would make the merger less anti-competitive.
AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson said the idea his company would be too powerful after the deal "borders on the comical".
Donald Trump is not a fan of CNN.
