He was called irascible, a control freak and a lot worse make. James has covered the Redstone family for the Los Angeles Times. Sumner was one of the most colorful and wily media moguls on the stage. Sumner Redstone's life was epic. The Star student in grade school in Boston AA code breaker in World War two Harvard Law a job with the Justice Department. When he was about 13 he went to work for his father, who owned a few drive in theatres in New England. Sumner eventually turned the business into a national theater chain, and here is where he made his first big footprint in the entertainment industry. Redstone was an early pioneer of the movie multiplex. He was always driven, but a near death experience was a turning point. In 1979 he narrowly survived a hotel fire in Boston by, he said, clinging to a window sill. The burns on his body were so severe it took several surgeries to recover. Redstone sued the hotel and donated the settlement to Massachusetts General Hospital, which created the Sumner Redstone Burn Center. This is from an interview Sumner Redstone did in 2000 with the archive of American television. The interesting thing is that all of the most exciting things that have happened to me I've done in my life happened after the fire. The first exciting thing happened when Redstone was in his sixties. In 1987 he launched a hostile takeover of Viacom, which owned some TV and radio stations and cable channels, including MTV. Some of the Viacom executives also wanted to buy the company, but Redstone kept outbidding them, one analyst said. At the time. It was a war of attrition, and he wore them down Meg James after he acquired Viacom. The bankers, you know, suggested that he sell off these cable channels because he needed to pay down dead. And some of his advisers said No, no, let's keep the channels and Sumner did. And actually, that was a huge, huge decision because those channels really became the engines for his company. That's the way you do it. Plaited. MTV became a global sensation with audiences in Europe, Australia, Latin America, Russia and Beyond. Blue News Book M. Sumner Redstone was incredibly tenacious. He was said to be obsessed with Viacom stock price watching it constantly. And fired some of his most respected executives, including Tom Freston, who many credit with MTV is colossal success. Redstone's feuds with his own family members were notoriously ugly. He took on anyone who he felt was trying to Get into the limelight or take something away from him. Sumner wouldn't let anyone, not even his Children sort of outmaneuver him. Sumner Redstone eventually made his daughter Sherry and executive with both Viacom and CBS, and their bickering was very public. This is Sumner Redstone in an interview with former Disney executive Michael Eisner on CNBC in 2007. You want to give away what you have to your family. Be my guest. I'm fine. That's the way you're supposed to do that one. I'm not Still very active. I worked very hard. I traveled the world for Viacom. I'm not about to give up control. No, he wasn't Sumner Redstone wanted to be the king of content and make Viacom the most powerful entertainment company.

"A mistake that many photographers make as they make a go at being a professional photographer. is believing that being a generalist is an advantage. Saying that you can photograph, anything doesn't leave impression with a client that you think it should make. Secondly. It leaves the photographer to be defined by what they're hired to do. Rather than by the work that they have a passion for. You may achieve financial success. But. It may not be the type of photography. Sings to your heart Alan Clarke had a clear idea of the kind photographer. He wanted to be and the kinds of photographs you wanted to make. Based in Nashville Tennessee his desire to be a photographer in the music. Industry could have led him to photograph. Country Music Stars. But. He didn't want his physical address to pigeonhole his photography or his aspirations. so He created his own path as a commercial editorial photographer resulting in a career that has allowed him to photograph the likes of Sir George Martin even. Hawk Bob Newhart and two former presidents. I hope this conversation demonstrates the importance of defining who you WanNa be and who you are as a photographer. This is about an annex and welcome back to the candidate frame. Are, I. Alan Welcome to the show. Thank you glad to be here so glad to get Nice Mike. Voice this should be. This is gonNA sound good? Stuff. You ever watched thirty rock now know. Alec, Baldwin and Will Arnett, both have amazing voices, and so they played that up a lot, and that's to our strengths as well so they had like a sexy voice off at one point. Close to each other, and be like I can do that and then they to be like. Yes, you can this. Man Gets. Today's the record this. The astronauts took off on the capsule and the rocket today and I know you're thinking. What you're talking about. You're saying. Neil. Armstrong! Yeah, it's a replica of his suit over a Hoodie. So Yeah I've completely nerd out today you've you've photographed a bunch of the of the suits. But where did the best nation begin? I think like most of us. You think of these images and you dream when you're a child like I was I wanted to be. An oceanographer wanted to be part of the cousteau. Society I wanted to be an astronaut and. Set in my second third grade class looked out the window and reflected on every port report card ever had. Would get these notes of our report cards to be like a you unsatisfactory. He just doesn't pay attention. He looks out the window constantly. That's what I got. Unsatisfactory what they had on the report Carsberg. Takes. A dreamer looks like when they're little. We have the album are recordings of the Apollo flight at my house, growing up so double album and it had pictures of the flight and I remember. I didn't think I really understood exactly what I was listening to just Kinda of thought, it will couple. At record on and just listened to it and look at looking at the pictures. I think it's probably still in my house somewhere. Let even though I don't have a record player anywhere near, let's. I, don't know I'm not one of those. Guys. Are. You saying you're not a hipster? Is that what you're saying? I think that by a couple of decades man I duNno, sometimes. My wife tells me their original hipster. Looking into some of this I'm like I. Don't know, but then I look at myself. When I do that. A you still have a record player and listen to things and she may be right. Working the idea that you want it to be able to photograph the spaces issue. Number of them have and you know I guess the idea came along Huntsville. Space and rocket center is only two and a half hours from Nashville so. have been going down there since I was a kid. My parents took me when I was little, and it just never stopped and something like a tradition. Take took my children there and. I've had photo shoots. Their showed up multiple times I. Don't think they. Enough to where they're sick of me, but it's pretty close. And just kept going there and going there, but then when I would do like photo shoots across. You know our great country. I would go to in in Boston there's A. Museum for JFK and I've been there and just seeing Johnson, space center in Houston of course, and all the different spots every time I get a chance I'll go and visit and just take my camera with me when I go, and my whole point is to just record these to record them like I would do it. Not like a tourist would try to actually light it really well, and sometimes you get permission to do these things, and sometimes you don't. But most of these things are on public display, and were American citizens, so we can kind of like just Bassani and people don't know this, but all all the museums in DC are all. All free to American citizens, because that's part of our taxes, and that's what it goes towards, and so you can kind of do anything you and requests, these types of things, so it started years ago through a space and rocket center, which was a privately funded thing, and it was on the redstone arsenal, the right next to the arsenal base course Verner von Braun worked out of Huntsville Developing Saturn five, and so it's steed like a weird thing like an Alabama of all places steeped in this rocket tradition. You know that know people just don't know about and they kind of had them. They're just to kind of hide them a little bit. Kept them safe there instead of putting them in a big city like DC or New York, but that's when the fascination started from as from a very early age, just repeatedly going down there and shooting these things and You know on crappier cameras when I was little like instamatic disclaimer.

It's interesting from the medical point of view. It's interesting from social point of view. It's interesting from the drama point of view, there's drama and theater on Broadway. But I think the most interesting exciting dramatic. Life's and events take place at thirteen four Broadway where we have real patients going through the fight of their life. And they come to us because their fight has been resolved. They want to have better chances in options and wanna hear all the options so often people go to search, and so they hear the surgical story. But they don't hear the whole story. They go to the chemo, Dr here the chemo story, but they don't hear the whole story, and we try to do things differently here. I believe part of it is my background. I'm triple board certified and trade to three separate areas. And. Believe doctors should talk about all the options. So I think the surgeon should be able to talk about chemo and radio surgery, and the chemo doctors should be talking about surgery in radio surgery. But it seems like they don't do it seems like instead of informing the patient. They're trying to sell so often not always not always. But so often the surgeon is trying to push people to have surgery, and that's their livelihood. I understand that. But we have a moral obligation to the patient and the chemo Dr same thing that tried to push came on. We see so many people who get chemo pushed on them for years. Well, why does that happen?.
Anderson named St. John's head coach
"Then you finally got an answer to the next Saint John's head coach was going to be because we all agree this ten day. Search has been an out in barris meant I no problem with Saint John's moving on from Chris Mullin, but the plan in place after the fact, let's say left a lot to be desired the failed. Chase of Bobby Hurley what went on with him cruise hearing about porter Moser. I mean, it was just a different story every day. You didn't know who is running. The search was that the new AFL director, Mike Craig was deported. Trustees and the president involved portal nightmare. And I have to be honest when I found out Thursday morning that Kim Koo said withdrawn his name from the search fearing the worst. I was taking a Twitter destroying the program. Rightfully sell for the way, these last ten days have chicken out little did. I know that Saint John's we're actually end up with a head coach and candidate that has a pretty impressive resume is you found out Thursday night that Mike Anderson full head coach at UAB, the former head coach, Missouri. And the former head coach at Arkansas. Is the next head coach of the Saint John's Redstone. His what you like about, Mike Anderson. Everywhere. He has gone. He's one. When's the last time Saint John's can give you coach with that a resume from that amount of stops along the way. It's been quite some time. Mike Anderson is one. Took Arkansas NCW tournament through the last five years. Saint John's can't tell you the last time they've done that going back to the late nineteen ninety s David won a tournament game in nineteen years. You're getting a head coach who's gonna bring a style of play that I think is going to be appealing to lot guys that thinking about one sT shots. Forty minutes of hell, obviously, his proteges men was no Richardson at Arkansas style, they played winning national championship. They're gonna get up and down to four. They're going to defend they're going to be fun team to watch. If you bring in right players. Now the knock on this. Anderson higher is going to be not only the manner in which it was conducted. But the fact that he doesn't have New York ties. I don't think that's in the world. I really don't. And here's why you're going to bring an assistant coach is most likely who do have those New York dies. And if you know anything about college basketball, these days recruiting now is nationwide. You're not just going to focus on a niche area. You'll go coast to coast players Steve alive and tried to do it. Chris Mullin shot to do it coaches over the country. Yeah, you're going to recruit the area in which coaching. But you looking to get players that are going to fit your style players that are gonna stick around players that are going to be eligible now my stick and do that. I think it sell it higher, especially considering the set of circumstances. The embarrassment at reportedly interview with francesa couple days ago. The dirty laundry being aired every which way Saint John's they got themselves proven cut. They got themselves the head coach who's what bendy NCW tournament. Nine times seventeen years. Who is basically twenty five hundred it's an impressive resume. Now, we'll see if that resume can continue to be successful in a program that yeah hasn't had much success over the last eighteen nineteen years. So Mike Anderson, formerly of Arkansas, the new head coach Saint John's, then you had the keys on Thursday night so much for the Yankees taking the good feel of the Boston series and carrying it over into Thursday's game because the basically sleepwalking through nine innings against the Kansas City Royals. They're facing a mediocre pitcher coming off multiple surgeries. And Homer Bailey won't pitch came out of the Mingo her mom who gives him six innings through on baseball. We gave up a couple of gopher balls. You'll gonna take that anytime a on amount. Six Durham baseball Yankee, bats scorn run in the first inning. Did absolutely nothing in this game. And look the acheived one through six in his lineup. Still in my estimation have enough to give you far better efforts than what you saw against the royals, but you have to knowledge the fact that the Yankees seven eight nine Mike Ford. Austin role mind pile await Yankee like so one story short the keys trying to tread water. Eight ten on a year to get cavalry back soon as possible. Hoping for more. Good news. I'm Gail and do hor we'll see what his role is going to be came comeback. Maybe just be at the H that talking about maybe the idea of impeding up a first baseman for about like that. It's you consider getting Gary Sanchez back on Sunday. We'll be cipher so rise 'cause I'm sick and tired of watching Austin role mind who is not a starting catcher in the big leagues. You want? Good news on Hicks. You canoes on Stanton. But if there is a silver lining to all these Yankee injuries man could Frazier's taking his opportunity. He's run with it. He had another multi hit night on Thursday, and he's gonna make life very difficult. Aaron Boone wants the keys have some healthy players back in a lot. But in the meantime, the Handke's gotta find a way even with the injuries to beat up on somebody's bad teams losing series at home to the Orioles. The tigers. And the White Sox is unacceptable. You'd better hoping putting the canned City Royals on that list. Five fifteen here on this Friday morning stage. A after die chance give it to you right here on the fan.

Let's go. Find Sumner a steady girlfriend and they hired at Steiner's to do that. And that is how Sidney Holland came into his life, and who is in Holland. So Sidney Holland is one of two women who lived with Sumner for about three years from two thousand thirteen to two thousand sixteen and this point he was really not well, especially the the back half of that they took care of him and said, he was his girlfriend and the other one men while hers was sort of an ex girlfriend who also was a friend, and they controlled access to him and this even between Sumner and executives if I come in and CBS, and eventually they were ousted, and it was sort of their ousting from his mansion in his life that set in motion this sort of amazing. Drama and corporate warfare that has kept common CVS in the front pages of the newspapers for the last three years old is he he's ninety five where does he live lives in Beverly Hills? We're kind of health does he have at this point. Not good stable, but not good. People who know him say that he he can't speak. He can't eat. He has a feeding tube. He can sometimes grunts that he mostly communicated about a year ago through an ipad loaded with snippets of his voice. Three would push buttons would say, yes. No. And one is his favorite curse words. So he is barely there. I guess is how people you met him. I not he was very ill before I ever started working on this project any reaction about this book that she wrote from the family. Well, I can't really answer that question directly because my. There's been no public reaction. Let me put it that way. I'm a lot of my discussions in this book American for this book, some background, and I need to protect the sources that I talked to you for the book, but there has been no public outcry. Certainly there's a page seventy five. The end of the trial and may six two thousand sixteen in Los Angeles in Los Angeles Superior court where you in the courtroom. I was not in the courtroom. I actually was on maternity leave. So what was the trial, and why was it? So important it's near the end of your book. This is the final trial for the the battle of Viacom right in in two thousand sixteen. So this was the trial between two sides multiple trials happening at the same time. But basically, this was a giant power struggle happening between Viacom, the former CEO, Viacom Felipe diamond and really Sumners daughter, Sherry Redstone who in the wake of this really took over the family holding company, which is called national amusements, which controls CBS, Viacom, and we now see is running the entire empire will CBS and Viacom she's in charge. Clearly and in this trial. Basically Felipe had been not just ahead of Viacom. But he was also a trustee of the trust that was going to control all of the controlling stock of oh CBS and Viacom family holding company had and one day may one day out of the blue sky. He was kicked off the trust along with another lawyer who've been on there for a long time, and he sued and said. Not Sumner who's kicking off the trust. It's his daughter. And this is an invalid things lawyers. I've never heard of them. This is just a straight and that started a series of lawsuits in in multiple states that led to the overhaul of the back board his ouster in the rise to power of Sherry Redstone. I'm going to read I can't read it all as you. Well know the last paragraph in this particular chapter. Around lunchtime. The trial was dismissed an audio recording of Sumner. Pleading was a prospective lover to participate in a four way with Bob and the most beautiful producer was posted to the gossip site radar online. First of all how did it get to radar online? Oh, we don't know. The first of all I have to correct you're asking me about a trial. I was giving you an answer about a subsequent trial that happened a month. After that, the one you were asking about was a trial about Manuela hers her so that was a trial that happens in the spring of that year. And that was the fight to get Manuela out of the house. After she was kicked out of the mansion, as I mentioned, she turned around and sued and said Sumner does not have mental capacity, and this is a really big deal in the corporate world because people have been wondering for a year. Wow. Sumner doing why haven't we heard from him? What's going on the stock of Viacom down and Manuel seem to provide investors and answer to this while what's going on? It's he doesn't have mental capacity. She said, and she was suing to be reinstated as his his mental health guardian, basically. But also to say that his decision to kick her out of the house was invalid. And oh, by the way, decision to write her out of his will all happen. The same time with invalid so that trial, which culminated in this absolute zoo where Sumner was on a videotape being interviewed. But no one can actually see the tape that transcript that there was someone sort of interpreting his grunts, but he did say he didn't want men wanna his life. And he wanted his daughter Sherry to to be there. So then while his trial was dismissed, and that was the end of Manuela. And that after that is when that bizarre audio tape was leaked, we don't really know. Who who leaked it can't read much more of it says never done a threesome with two men Sumner says on the recording. He's done it with two women. So he's a little bit nervous. But he's gonna. Because I want him to. So what will probably happen? We'll probably really excite you. It goes on and. Just can't be read on television. Ruin published other than your book, it was published on on mater online. So people knew about it. There's an audio recording. That's like pretty clearly his voice and look people around him say to this is he had a a very lively love life in all of the court papers, both sides, the describe women coming in being paid for companionship. And this was a pretty normal thing that was happening all the time. Does he still control eighty percent of the company? Yes. So it's a little arcane, but he controls eighty percent of the national amusements, which is the holding company and not company controls eighty percent of the voting shares oppose CBS, Viacom, one of the reasons I go this way is because there were people on the board. That are well-known Joseph Califano was on the board. Senator William Cohen, a Maine was on the board dick Parsons lately came on the board as chairman for a while. Norval is on the board with all of these shenanigans in his life loss, having a federal license through the CBS on stations house he'd been able to maintain control of this. And why didn't some of those more members? If they knew this say. That is the six billion dollar question. Especially because some of the members on the board who aren't the ones you listed, but he had several good friends on the on the board. CBS producers who would go over to his house for moving night every Sunday. I mean, they they knew the situation and one of them actually who just passed away. When into his house into a video of of Sumner in January of last year this year to try to prove to the world, you know, he's not okay. And it was a great legal wrangling about that videotape, and we'll see what are we ever see day. Your question is how did the board members not know? And that is my biggest question. So he he was very ill and toward the end of his public life. When. A lot of these board members were there. But some of them have been there for many many years. I think it's impossible that the top people at the company top people around him did not know that he was not really capable of making these decisions. Now, the official position of the family to this day is that he still has mental capacity that is legal position that they have to this CBS had to fire. Dave Jeff Fager who ran sixty minutes, they fired last month as rand CBS network for sexual harassment. And then you read this book, and I'm not even gonna come close to getting to all the details and this book, how do people like this? Keep a federal license is ask again to run television stations across the United States and have one of the most important networks in television history. Well, we have this sort of ends before the CBS fight, but it's the Viacom site, and then a CBS fight, and they're very similar. I mean, they're basically the same fight played out twice to separate corporation ever corporations, but the Redstone control both of them, but that fundamental question of where was the oversight? I mean, if many people said that if this book ends with a gigantic fight over Viacom which had seen its stock price nearly dropped by half. And everyone on Wall Street was wondering what what is the CEO doing? And where is whereas Sumner who in the past would have fired a CEO from your wobble in a stock price? Why is he allow? Allowing this to happen. And the answer is because he he wasn't really there. And so we we see the that same thing with CBS. Now, it is. I think a question that will not go away. It was raised during the litigation this year over lessening dress. The question was raised. Well, did share about don't come to power and inappropriate way? Did is everyone telling the truth about some nurse capacity. And I think I think we'll hear that question again before it's all over even though people have tried to sort of push it aside, and there have been settlements in these these lawsuits, it's still there dug into this book. What did you learn for the first time? My favorite thing that I learned was that Sumners father Mickey Redstone has been a bootlegger, and that really national amusements was founded as as a I don't wanna see a criminal enterprise, but they were criminals involved. It's not completely unusual for for companies to have it of underworld associations. But I did not understand just how deep the underworld associations. That leads national news mints were Mckee red stones business partner. Was this guy? Doc Sagansky who was really famous book and. It's funny. It'd be FBI finally gave me my flare. Request fifteen months after I filed it about doc Sagansky, and it just shows him receiving payments from the theaters that the Redstone owned up until the fifties. So he was a full partner. It's pretty clear in the foundation of national amusements. This is Cuban day on C span radio with Wall Street Journal investigative reporter Keach Hagi. Why did it take fifteen months get for your request? I I guess the the wheels of government and grind slowly. National amusements in the ownership of the movie theaters. How important were they to Sumner Redstone eventually? Accumulating all this. Well, very important. I mean that was the foundation upon which this is all based so Sumner loves to say that he is a self made man presents himself is building this empire. He's absolutely a brilliant legal mind and deserves full credit for that but much like Donald Trump. He took over his father's company. So his father Mickey Redstone built this chain of theatres the drive in theaters Dantley, then turned into indoor theaters, and then these multiplexes and they bought the land underneath the theater. So they could flip them like that. And that is what Sumner came into. And then he took that entity and used it used a lot of debt use leverage and use that to take over Viacom. So without the the land purchases and the the foundation that Mickey had created..

Twelve seemed to be the magic number when CBS head honcho, Leslie move is was first accused by six women of sexual harassment CBS launched an investigation, but kept the Boyle festering. But once another six women pointed fingers at moon viz CBS decided to Lance the boil kissing moonville goodbye still up in the air how much money if any does the departing CBS CEO take with him. We will go in depth. And can't we all just get along on the tails of the constant Twitter wars between the Republicans and Democrats to longtime political consultants from opposing sides seek to sure up the political divide will they use magic to get this done. Details to come later on in the show changes in the air on college campuses parents who've lost their. Children allegedly to Greek life hazing teaming up to shut it down. So we'll go in depth on that. Plus more change watch out for the new tax laws tax specialists warning that you might want to sharpen your pencils. Make sure you don't have to fiddle with your withholdings before it's too late and another financial note you may wanna start saving now the new iphone costs. They might shock you and even more shocking. Scientists find that robots can become racist. Well, CBS may be almost done with less Moonves. But we're only beginning joining us is Kim masters editor at large of the Hollywood reporter. So Kim this latest article comes out I understand that CBS CBS board apparently knew a few days ago. At least that this was about to be published. So they decided to give him a quick boots. So now what? Well, now, they've created a temporary executive as the acting CEO of the company somebody very close to listen so obvious that properly that person probably won't last because the person who controls the company Sherry Redstone is not interested in having moons as oil list run this company. They already be shapes the board so that his allies would be gone six people left and were replaced Sunday. So it's a pretty dramatic makeover in the future CBS is not quite clear at this point tickets through what you've been hearing over the the recent weeks when they were grappling with this. And knowing maybe that another article was coming and these allegations stronger than some of the other ones in the original article. But then there was also this discussion, maybe he could leave with a parachute in the hundred million dollar figure was thrown around not made a lot of people angry. Well, this drama went on when as Sherry Redstone who controls spoke CBS, and Viacom, which is in comedy central and Nickelodeon, and Paramount Pictures, she wanted to recombine these two companies that her father has split apart from years ago and less loon vez once would have been very happy to run both companies got to a point with the business changing the way, it is with you know, Netflixing Amazon streamers coming in. He come with became rather troubled, and he didn't want to combine the companies so setting aside, his conduct Sherry Redstone was eager to get rid of him. The conduct definitely opened the door to getting rid of him. Now, he was going to sue her and try to fight it out. But once these second allegations came out there. The Pacific and disturbing the allegations of the first one which which article which were disturbing enough at the New Yorker article. It was just over. He could no longer brazen it out, and he just had to go on a, you know, in a matter of hours from publication. You know, what's interesting Kim is the policy sometimes of large corporations, and I'll tell you what I mean by that. I mean CBS when when we used to be owned by CBS CBS used to make every employee here once a year. Watch videos sexual harassment videos among others, and then you'd have to answer questions and get a diploma to indicate that you understood all the reprecussions of of treating men or women badly. Specially sexually you kind of wonder where the heads of companies like that in this case last Moonves, where's his diploma? You know, he presented himself at a very charming guy. I I don't know if they made him take I've had to do those courses myself. I don't you know, I don't know if they made him do it. But obviously, this is a total violation many many companies look the other way, I mean, we've seen big problems that box we've seen big problems at NBC. So we've seen problems that CBS not just at the at the less lupus level. But in the news with allegations involving the especially the environment at sixty minutes, and of course, Charlie rose. So it's a lot of do as I say not as like you for some of these top level guys who when you know, when there's a concentration of money and power at that's where things oftentimes starts to come apart. And people think they're bulletproof speaking of money, others twenty million dollars going to me two times up causes right? But but if I did investigation into what doesn't finds false will. He could get a payout later on from CBS. Yeah. I mean, they're gonna they started an investigation after the first article ran at that was late. They should have done it sooner. Because it was clearly something that have been brought up with certain members, and they decided not to pay any attention. And now they're going to complete that investigation into five whether they can terminate him for cause and that's going to take awhile. We're not gonna find out what if anything less best gets from all this for a long time. But you know, what he's really really rich. I mean, he's made hundreds of millions of dollars in the past several years. So we don't have to have a fundraiser for him. I was going to say that even if they decide that that there wasn't 'cause. To fire him. And so he has to get his hundred million dollars. Why is he getting a hundred million dollars? Anyway. Well, let's look at his salary is one of the top compensated people in the country. He had a lot of support on Wall Street. He made CBS the most successful.

"Is cbs and sherry redstone and her family's national amusements this is the holding company they've been trying to force cbs to merge with viacom and the suit was filed in chancery court in delaware here to tell us all about it as paul sweeney us director of research and senior media an internet analyst for bloomberg intelligence alright why is cbs which is controlled through eighty percent voting stake of national amusements why is cbs suing the head of the shari redstone the controlling shareholder of national amusements well i think it reflects the fact that the less moon and cbs and management team i think they're less enthusiastic about a merger with viacom simply because cbs feels like it is as superior company at viacom has has a lot of operational issues to overcome to really improve its performance so less has been reticent about doing a deal if he does a deal he wants to have his management team in firmly in control and that's kind of where we are right now and i think a national museum sherry redstone wants bob backlash the current ceo viacom to have a very prominent role the combined company and in fact be less as heir apparent so that's kind of the the issue here so they're kind of going back and forth here so what this move today does it it's cbs effort to try to dramatically reduce the influence the voting shares of national amusements and sherry redstone such that they would not have their over there outside controlled and being able to force deal essentially putting it to the shareholders to kind of vote on a deal outside of what the headstones are trying to push for this is such personal interpersonal drama i mean i can just imagine les moonves says and share your redstone being in the same room and shooting daggers at each other with their is you know basically less saying i wanna have whoever i want under me when cbs viacom merges and cherry red saying nen and it is my company both of them from your perspective you were saying before the segment that les moonves kind of whipped out the nuclear option here so what's sherry red stones nuclear option in response surely redstone nuclear option is to simply fire less and that takes less right out of the equation and.

"Into this leadership role at viacom in crisis environment created by the fact that felipe domain had been left to pretty much runamuck and really take the company for multi multi millions of dollars not just tens but over one hundred while this company just gradually fell into great disrepair and is struggling and i think it speaks to the lack of succession planning that sumner redstone did he became too frail to monitor what was happening at viacom and now there's this wildly unequal situation which sherry redstone is determined to sort of power through by forcing this merger bob baker has one thing going for him he has the ear and trust of sherry redstone and i think that's an underestimate factor here she ultimately controls these companies she controls the redstone family trust she's clearly put him into a position of thority based on a plan that he had sold her and you have less moon beds who is this guy that's run his own kingdom for many many years now and doesn't want to be told what to do and i think at this point he sort of earned that right so it's a tough situation for her yeah i mean the redskins are notorious for not dancing with the ones who bring them they've had exacts who brought them a lot of success in the past i'm thinking of tom frison who who did very well and oversaw the creation of mtv when mtv was a real thing and then they turn around and fire them some early i mean there's not a ton of loyalty i i think that let's moonves right now is really paranoid because he knows that track record that sherry redstone is gonna try potentially to undermine him in one way or another and the tension is sort of palpable right now how this resolves i don't know i sort of thought it i maybe it's kabuki that they're making such a low offer and really there's kind of a backroom deal but it sure doesn't look like it meanwhile over at disney's abc there have been a couple of major defections of key talent and first shonda rhimes and now kenya barris who created blackish and is a huge talent a recent episode did not air recent episode of blackish and you know that show makes political statements pretty regularly and sometimes really powerfully recent episode didn't air and.
