FCC gets tough on AT&T merger with hiking imagery

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) had some anonymous tough talk for AT&T about its proposal to acquire T-Mobile. 

An official namelessly told The Wall Street Journal: "There's no way the chairman's office rubber-stamps this transaction. It will be a steep climb to say the least."

That doesn't sound like a tranquil Sunday-getaway-to-the-countryside sort of climb. Get your backpacks, boots and, depending on elevation, portable personal oxygen tanks. The FCC is ready to throw down!
