The legal challenge ramps up hostilities after AT&T rejected the Justice Department's demand earlier this month to divest its DirecTV unit or Time Warner's Turner Broadcasting - which contains news network CNN - in order to win antitrust approval.
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.
The deal announced more than a year ago would merge vast content of Time Warner units like premium cable channel HBO and news channel CNN with the massive internet and pay TV delivery networks of AT&T.
The lawsuit would be the first time in decades the DOJ has sued to block a so-called "vertical deal" between two companies that aren't direct competitors.

The No. 2 US wireless carrier struck a deal in October 2016 to buy Time Warner, which also owns the premium channel HBO and movie studio Warner Bros, so it can bundle video entertainment on its mobile service. "We see no legitimate reason for our merger to be treated differently".
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.
The Justice Department official also warned that such a merger could allow AT&T to slow down advances in technology that would cut costs for consumers.
