    I Would, However, Like To Take Back What I Said About Dick Parsons Being A Moron–That Was Just Plain Rude On My Part (Though Not Entirely Uncalled For)

    Dear Time Warner Shareholders, I’m not going to pretend to say I’m sorry to say this—it’s so trite, so phony, so somewhat conciliatory, so just not me, Carl Icahn—so I’m just going to say it, without pretense: I told you bitches so. Yeah, that felt good. -Carl More Talk of a Time Warner Revamp [Dealbook]

    Time Warner Is No Pepsi

    We don’t want to harp on the story of Gary Wandschneider, the Pepsi Bottling Group executive who went to the Feds when his attempt to get a little on the side made him the target of a twenty-two year old scammer extortionist. He’s certainly not the first wealthy, older man to find himself in a […]

    Dick (Hearts) Carl

Reuters reports on Parson’s comments at the Reuters Media Summit: “When someone accumulates even 3 or […]

    Will Time Warner Sell Time Inc?

    As Dan Gross points out, Time Warner seems pretty uninterested in making major investments or innovations in its magazine business. Maybe its planning on selling it off. Who would buy? Oh, we don’t know. Maybe the folks who just hired Time Inc’s editor-in-chief? And here’s a leading indicator. The Carlyle Group, the huge private-equity firm […]

    Parsons Aiming for City Hall

    A few years ago we almost supported Mike Bloomberg for mayor because greek shipping heir and poison penned essayist Taki persuaded us that New York City needed to be led by a rich man who understood business. We’re still not sure Taki was right in saying Bloomberg deserved our backing. There have been too many […]

    Ted Turner Goes Quietly. For Once.

    DealBook, in pointing to a Boston Globe story about Ted Turner’s departure from the Time Warner board, notes that Turner left “quietly”. (The Globe calls it “uncharacteristically understated.”) The TW shareholders were, during the course of Turner’s leaving, subjected to a video tribute to Turner that we didn’t get to see, but that probably included […]

    Average Time Warner Shareholder > Carl Icahn?

    When Carl Icahn was pursing Time Warner, we kept hearing that Icahn didn’t really understand the business–or businesses, as it were. (And we couldn’t help but think that Icahn’s assertion that TWX was big and bloated and might function more efficiently in smaller pieces wasn’t exactly a rocket-science observation.) But Dick Parsons directly suggests as […]

    TWX + MSFT = D’OH

    Henry Blodget on Susan Kalla’s (Caris & Co) suggestion in BusinessWeek** that Microsoft taking over Time Warner would be a “great move”: I don’t know Susan and it’s certainly possible that she was misquoted. If not, however, I have some questions: Where was she five years ago, when AOL bought Time Warner? Would she care […]

    Parsons Family Crest

    Eddy Elfenbein of CrossingWallStreet writes in: The NYT article the other day about corporate travel mentioned (in passing) Dick Parsons’ family crest. I wondered what he could possibly have on his crest. Carl Icahn? Steve Case? Ted Turner? How do guys from Brooklyn get family crests anyway? Well, one of my readers found it. To […]

    Time Warner: Big and Bigger

    Just when you thought Time Warner couldn’t get any bigger or dumber**, TW CEO Dick Parsons tells the FT that he wants to move into wireless via acquisition or buying spectrum.
