In his second day of testimony in the DOJ’s lawsuit to stop AT&T from buying Time Warner Inc., top Dish Network programming executive Warren Schlichting found himself undermined by comments from his boss that were more than three years old.

Cross-examining the Justice Department’s witness, AT&T lead attorney Daniel Petrocelli used statements from Dish Chairman Charlie Ergen to poke holes in Schlichting’s core thesis—that an AT&T-Time Warner deal would drive up the price for Time Warner’s Turner Networks-branded channels, thus rendering Dish unable to license a vital programming resource.
