AT&T and Time Warner are set to merge in an $86 billion deal that will almost certainly change the landscape of American media, and indeed, media in general.

The deal, months in the making, is the second massive merger this year with long term ramifications for consumers across the globe, the first being the recent Bayer-Monsanto merger that will unite two aggro-chemical giants, which will control a 25 percent share of the world’s agricultural business. The current AT&T Time Warner deal will similarly unite two giants of media and communication.
