Media Merger Wave

In class, I mention that using the Stackelberg leader model that there is an incentive for leaders to keep merging, which helps explain merger waves.  Here The New York Times gives us an example of a merger wave in the media industry, and if the merged firms can keep their market share then this fits with the Stackelberg leader solution to the horizontal merger paradox.
