Comcast today made a $65 billion offer to buy major portions of 21st Century Fox, setting up a potential bidding war with Walt Disney Company.

The offer comes one day after a judge rejected the Trump administration's attempt to block AT&T's purchase of Time Warner Inc. The ruling suggests that Trump's Department of Justice wouldn't be able to stop a Comcast/Fox deal.
