Could Disney bid for Time Warner Inc. ?

Could Disney be interested in Time Warner Inc since Fox bid fell through? Warner Bros is part of Time Warner and the beloved Harry Potter is involved.

Where did you see that it fell through?

Never mind, I found it. That's a big bundle of money that they rejected. I can't see anyone going higher.

Is fall through the right word? Wasn't it unsolicited?

You could say that. Disney should pay attention to this. Since Fox has rights to some Marvel Charcters and Time Warner has rights to DC comics . Its possible for Disney to negoiate a deal as well.

The Fox bid is back on, Murdoch is now ready to bid more than $75B. The talking heads on Bloomberg are all saying a deal is very likely.

Here is a different view as posted on CNN Money. Notice the last couple paragraphs in this extract from http://money.cnn.com/2014/07/16/medi...d=SF_MED_River

"Time Warner has cable networks such as TBS, TNT and premium network HBO, as well as movie studio Warner Bros.

A deal would combine Time Warner's media brands with the Fox broadcast network, the 21st Century Fox movie studio, and entertainment cable networks such as FX as well as Fox News and Fox Sports 1.

It would also give Fox access to a number of sports rights deals that Time Warner now holds with the NBA, the NCAA basketball tournament and Major League Baseball.

Time Warner also owns CNN, but under terms of the bid, Fox would sell the news network to sidestep regulatory concerns.

Sources told CNNMoney that ABC and ESPN owner Walt Disney Co. (DIS) and CBS (CBS) could be possible suitors for CNN.

Time Warner said even without CNN, government regulators would have issues with the merger and putting two giant movie studios under the same corporate roof. "

we shouldn't be wishing for any more merging of companies like this...that would leave only FIVE companies in charge of 90% of the U.S. media

I agree! What happened to antitrust regulations?

I agree totally. Too bad the folks making these decisions take money from the companies that they make the decisions about.
