"CNBC - It's Comcastic!" Is NBC About To Be Sold To Comcast?
If this most recent report by Bloomberg has any credibility to it, Michele Caruso Cabrera's daily work commute is about to expand to a size 36DD.
Comcast Corp. doesn’t have an agreement to buy NBC Universal Inc., spokeswoman D’Arcy Rudnay said.
In an e-mail, Rudnay declined to comment on a Web site report that Comcast is in discussions with majority owner General Electric Co. on NBC Universal and bankers for both sides met this week.
“While we don’t comment on M&A rumors, the report that Comcast has a deal to purchase NBC Universal is inaccurate,” Rudnay said.
While on any other occasion we would say this kind of non-denial denial is the closest admission of the truth possible, in this case we side with the undecideds. After all, who would be stupid enough to want to buy CNBC....That $35 billion price tag on NBC, that probably consists of $36 billion for everything else and the balance for CNBC.
uhm, yeah, that's pretty much all the commentary we have on this one.
