11 comments

Given the ongoing controversy about high airfares on Delta flights out of Memphis, where the airline maintains a “fortress hub” (i.e., one that is quasi-monopolistic), this colloquy between 9th District congressman Steve Cohen and U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder is revealing.

Basically, this clip can speak for itself. But: Note how Cohen doesn’t shy away from interrupting the A.G.’s efforts to bloviate, btw. And who knew about the swap of spheres-of-influence between Kroger and Schnucks?
