    CBS & Viacom: Buy One, Sell the Other

    CBS and Viacom had been going through rather tense deal negotiations when the shares got a boost from the ruling in favor of AT&T's (T) Time Warner acquisition, but now there's less optimism that the deal will happen. For his part, Miller calls an acquisition by CBS a "pipe dream" for Viacom, leading to his bearish position on the stock, which he calls a "value trap" hampered by poor programing choices and only minor changes that aren't enough to right the ship. Barron's is also more bullish on CBS's prospects without Viacom.

    [$$] Shari Redstone's Path to Power

    Another person who witnessed the encounter saw no hug, but did see Mr. Gifford cupping Ms. Redstone’s chin and speaking to her in a demeaning paternal manner. In the two years leading up to this lawsuit, Ms. Redstone had been doing something that no American woman had ever done before: actively controlling a media empire worth more than $30 billion. As the de facto leader of National Amusements Inc., the family holding company that owns nearly 80% of the voting shares of CBS and Viacom, she calls the shots at both companies, which she lately had been trying to nudge toward a union in the face of a rapidly consolidating media industry.
