Nick Cannon out at Viacom, keeps deal with Fox

"I'm Kim, masters and this is the Hollywood breakdown joining me as my usual banter buddy on the business, Matt Bellamy and Matt this is very unfortunate situation that has developed There's a sort of a back and forth in the black media world, their business antisemitic incidents most recently I think is nick. Cannon was on a podcast, endorsed some clearly antisemitic views about Jews controlling the media, and whatever the these are old tropes. I have to say to her credit. jemele hill weighed in saying this kind of talk is unacceptable as did Kareem abdul-jabbar and a column in the Hollywood reporter, but this nick cannon incident he led to him, being fired by Viacom CBS a, he initially clapped back, and said you know. The CBS was treating him unfairly, and then seemed to have major change of heart and apologized and said he was gonNA learn, and he was sorry for the hurt he had inflicted, but. What's interesting to me? Is that while he fired? He had this show on vh. One called wild and out and other things going on CBS. He also is the host of the mass singer on Fox and you know. How surprised are you that Fox said that apology is completely acceptable. We're hanging with you on the mass singer. Yeah, I mean this really does point to an interesting dichotomy that's emerging especially when you look at a lot of the heightened sensitivity around these issues of hate, speech and inappropriate comments that have really come about over the past six to eight months. Fox seems to be an outlier here and a lot of people have put it in monthly. Yes, a lot of people have pointed to Fox News, which obviously is the home of many incendiary comments? Tucker Carlson was recently forced to go on one of those quote, unquote preplanned Fox News vacations when it was revealed that his lead writer was revealed to be posting anonymously on racist and homophobic and sexist websites. This is always been you know. The Fox News is separate from Fox Broadcasting Corporation which is run out of La. It's all owned by the Murdoch's, but Fox's always positioned itself as we have the LA operation. And then we have this Fox News thing, but here you have. Have a very specific incident on a Fox show with the host of not just a Fox show the most popular show on Fox and the Murdoch seemed to be okay with it. It sends a message that this isn't just Fox News separate from the La Company. This is all one company in the Murdoch's seemed to be endorsing a very tolerant. Shall we say view of this kind of speech? Yeah, the MURDOCHS ARE GONNA Murdoch. You know they they run the company. It's theirs and. Walk is possibly even more conservative than his father Rupert I'm not saying that a person can't apologize. Learn but I think when you make comments like this that nick cannon made. You. You don't just return with no without missing a beat. It's like okay, thanks. That's great. That just feels to me like it needs a little bit more of a pause. And why don't you go away for a little while and seek the truth and come back when you you feel that you know there's been a an interval I. Don't know if you reversed the situation and he were white host. Making these kinds of comments about say black people. That host would still have a job. That's an interesting question I. Don't know, but what is also interesting is just the state of the. The Fox company now because until last year Fox owned a movie Studio Television Studio a lot of businesses that have traditionally more liberal and more creative types in them. Now they've gotten rid of all that stuff to Disney and the Fox company is Basically Fox, news sports and the Fox Broadcasting Company, and it really has allowed them to be insulated from what's going on in the rest of media, which has been very attuned to these issues and very intolerant of this kind of hate speech. Fox's now kind of sewing its own path. Yes, now it's a little more obvious. Thank you, Matt! Belen former editorial director of the Hollywood. Reporter joins me this Monday at one thirty on the business. I'm Kim Masters, and this is the Hollywood

I get along with him very well. I like him personally. President Trump described his relationship with Dr Anthony Fauci is very good, but then I don't always agree with him Might as a result of those different is about you Tell CBS news he is not appreciated at the White House. So if I were advising after months of speaking his mind and contradicting the president Even after some administration officials called him out did not change course during a talk yesterday. Here it is, it's happened, You know your worst nightmare. The perfect storm. Mr Trump's forecast is very different. He claims Corona virus cases are spiking because the country is doing more testing, but the rate of positive tests has doubled in the last month. Do you acknowledge that it's Going up for other reasons, too, for example, that it's actually spreading. We have one of the lowest mortality rates anywhere. We test more than anybody by far and when you test you create cases, so we've created cases. Still, they're testing shortages across the country. Testing companies say the surgeon cases is leading to delays in delivering results. So those who are infected may be spreading the virus unknowingly, former acting White House chief of Staff McMullen Veiny said in an op ed. His son had to wait 5 to 7 days for results, and his daughter could not get a test at all, he wrote. That is simply inexcusable at this point in the pandemic, And while the White House's argue that lower mortality rates are a sign of the country's progress against the Corona virus, Some members of the task force say it's too soon to tell. We do expect us to go up. If you have more cases, more hospitalizations. We do expect to see that over the next two or three weeks before this turns around.

"Pretty decent end of the fiscal year for cisco core it is they're they're in the middle of a transformation but this is sort of a meat and potatoes company they own brands they deliver foodservice products and you haven't heard of most of the brands so it's really an execution play and they're in the middle of a pretty big transformation and that's not like what you would see with like a retail store like go in and it looks really different. It's changing how they operate behind. The scenes are putting more people in the field making technology more or at the key of what they're doing going to the cloud so they're they're in the period where they've sort of shed some of the pain from that <hes> some of the lay off some of the cost of people leaving because they're all transitioned conditioned and now you're starting to see some of the benefit hitting up against the headwind of trucking and distribution is getting more expensive in general and that actually actually cost about a five percent increase in u._s. expenses. It's gonna be interesting to see what the next couple of quarters looks like because as you said on the one hand cisco has gotten you know some of the pain of this transition behind them and if you look at how this stock is is performed over the last five years it's basically doubled but it's basically flat for the last year so that i think that as much as anything speaks to sort of the investments that they've had to make but like i'm i'm rooting for him. I don't know that i'm buying this stock today. I don't know that i'm buying the stock but there's one thing i really like about it so the overall restaurant industry has struggled a little bit but it's it's picked up but this company is so diversely spread across major chains all the way down to single store independence so if we have another trend remember when fast casual was really hurting this sort of sit down the friday's is level of casual restaurant was being hurt by police because it was cheaper and the food was better they have exposure to both of those so it doesn't really matter where you spend your food dollar and they're still going to do well. I'm not saying this is an unassailable company but this is a company that bottom is not gonna fall out of well yeah as you said this is. I mean in terms of the brands that they have. I mean i just think of the the eighteen wheelers that are branded sysco corporation pulling up to a hotel on loading anything from actual food to sort of kitchen materials appliances etc but as you said i mean that that is the you about the blessing and the curse of cisco corpus they are so diversified which is great it spreads out their risk and if they are able to execute at a high level level then i think that reward shareholders yeah and they're getting smarter about their execution so let's pretend you're you're on the kitchen at a mariot and you buy food from them now. They're making it much easier so you go. Oh my god i need through soup pans ladles or whatever it is to be able to tack that stuff onto your order and for them to have the behind find the scenes logistics to make that happen efficiently so this is one of those like company that looked at amazon and went. What did they do right. Oh they worked every aspect aspect of their supply chain so they can now get most things to you in a day cisco was behind that and now they're catching up it. We've been talking a lot lately about the entertainment entertainment industry <hes> most recently last week with disney's earnings and the unveiling of the bundle streaming bundle and sticking with entertainment as we speak c._b._s. Viacom are finalizing locked in a room locked in a room reportedly finalizing their merger agreement demint and the resulting company is going to combine everything that comes with c._b._s. Along with comedy central nickelodeon be just to name a few few along with paramount pictures major movie studio. This isn't this. Let's put that in quotes given their line. I was gonna say this is disney buying twenty-first-century. I centuries fox but in terms of entertainment. This is a pretty nice group of assets. It's a sort of aside from c._b._s. Network which is still. I would say an a a plus property. It's a whole collection of second here properties coming together and that doesn't hance their value so one of the random pieces. I was just reading about they own pluto cluedo tv. Have you ever heard of pluto tv not until you just said pluto t._v. Is like a sling but it's free and it basically collects all of the stuff. That's on the internet. That's free so like i've appeared on chatter. That's you know financial news service jason moser up here all the time well. You can get cheddar on pluto. You can get selections actions from different networks that make stuff available online well. They have twelve million subscribers so you say well c._b._s. Maybe has five million for c._b._s. Interactive you've now they have this other thing that has twelve million and all these little things comedy central has subscribers. M._t._v. has as you sort of aggregate all these services it becomes uh-huh more popular you know but what i worry about here and i think it's a big big. Concern is as break away from traditional cable and i think that's going to take another another eight ten years before. Older people just are gone mostly. Are you going to get the disney bundle. The net flicks bundle. Are you also going to get the number number three bundle and you could argue that this is the number four bundle after comcast so it's really it's better. They'll they'll fix them back in cost they'll end end. What's been three years of intrigue. I've done about nine industry focus episodes on this since since two thousand sixteen when they started talking <hes> so it's good for that but i don't i don't see a ton of upside just because nothing they own is all that great you mentioned paramount. Paramount has the fading transformers the probably peaked mission impossible. Oh i've said that before and they've come and done better. How dare you bet against tom. Cruise spongebob squarepants the live action door movie <hes> sonic the hedgehog these are or not star wars. You know they have a lot of third tier aged properties that they don't own theme parks. They don't have like it's really better better. I guess it's it's better to own shasta and r._c. Cola but it is going to be interesting to see you know i account remember if i said this on multiple money or or just sort of in conversation last week with someone about you look at disney's bundle. The original timeline timeline for the unveiling of disney's bundle was about a year and a half ago. You go back four or five years. That's like yeah like early. Twentieth eighteen this things coming up. They delayed it in my opinion. It was correct move and i it looks like they have it right in terms of being ready for launch but just just in terms of this whole landscape. I'm i've already moved past disney bundle to see. I'm already looking for four july great. What is apple. What does the roll out of apple plus. Gonna look like in two thousand twenty. What is the assuming they stick to the timeline. What does the rollout of n._b._c. Universal streaming up to your point about c._b._s. <hes> yeah i mean there is unlike music streaming where i i think that actually is a zero sum game. If you have one music streaming service i can't imagine you would pay for a second one and but video video streaming yeah it's easy to imagine people having multiple to your point how many multiple like i have all of them for the most part but i consider consider that a hazard of work in terms of i think the average person is going to have somewhere between two and five if you've totally cut the cord and you have a family of four. There's every reason to believe you might for different age. Reasons need different things. The disney bundle pricing makes it incredibly attractive active i. I was very on the fence about e._s._p._n. Plus the second that and i dropped who recently the second that bundle is available. I will pay the extra money to have all three even if it's only to watch a u._f._c. once a year just becomes a great value. I think there's another shoe to drop with c._b._s. Viacom this puts them in a position to by sony pictures or discover or <hes> who stars lionsgate <unk>. I don't know what else is out there a._m._c. They're going to need more content content and if you look at the c._b._s. Audience it's older so discover in my opinion is really the logical target but they don't have very much. You know. I can't imagine anyone who's paying for c._b._s. All access unless there is an n._f._l. Reason for it and they just don't live in the right market or something or they're huge huge fan of the twilight zone. I mean a few like the people who watch the good fight. Don't know how to work a streaming service so let's let's move on. I quick shot at the lincoln. Hiring is not as simple as putting an ad in the paper or posting to job board.

"But you never know. But yeah, I think I my opinion is what the Redstone family wants to do as they want to bury the bad performance. Of the Viacom cable channels like MTV and comedy central. What have you don't want to bury the bad performance? Amidst all of the good things that CBS has been doing. So that it won't be so obvious that Viacom has been a loser for years years. I mean. I got what's on comedy central? These days. Does anybody know? There. Yeah. Trevor Noah, and what I can't even watch that to be honest. I don't I don't think he's funny. But sometimes we'll have a good a good sitcom that will pop up here. And there is a key. Appeal was amazing that that went off air a few years ago. You know, they'll they'll they'll find young talent that are coming up and and bring a mama the getting eatings with it. Are they making any revenue in it? Really? Yeah. Then you look at the economics of Viacom. If you look at their earnings, it ain't what it used to be. And it certainly isn't what CBS's. Yeah. No, not at all. I mean digitally Viacom is trying to become relevant, and they're making a lot of investments in digital content and digital platforms and new things that are coming up and digital on their acquiring companies are investing in companies. I see them doing that in the market. But as far as the programming goes on the broadcast side that you're right. It's it's it is a it is a loser for years. But yeah, I think the only perspective I've ever had unless I heard I heard Howard talked about him along time ago way before way back when he was on terrestrial it mentioned in, you know, occasionally, my really quit listening to Howard. And when he went to serious, unfortunately. But yeah, I mean, this this gives me a lot of perspective. And it definitely, you know, it definitely gives me some some real, you know, something to go on if I'm not a cocktail party. I can talk about this. Well, see that. That's good. That's good.

'cause if you want to understand how technologies past can predict what's on the horizon, join us to discover the secret history of the future. Okay. So let's moon viz. That was of course, this famous running pharaoh piece in the New Yorker talking about the culture of sexism that he oversaw and how he was even probably of is lesbian visits a nice sky. He feels like a nice guy. He looks like a nice guy when he comes out in public and he's got this kind of funky Elit nice mile. He doesn't have that kind of Harvey Weinstein to him, but it turns out that he's not so nice. And now the board of CBS is reportedly negotiating his exit. He wants one hundred and fifty million in cash. They want two hundred million of like clawback Ables stock, and it looks very much like it's the end of les Moonves. Do we think that it is long long since that he should be gone already? Do you think he should be going with any kind of deal? It'll what's an what does this mean? Importantly, for the future of CBS. There's an independent company if anything. I think it's been seven weeks since Ronin Farrow's article came out and I think it's somewhat unconscionable that he wasn't at least put on leave. They kept him on that conference call famously that right after the piece came out, they knew the piece was coming out more than seven weeks ago yet. They didn't launch an investigation until after it came out. They didn't even communicate to their employees on the Friday came out. They waited the whole weekend and then they sent out some like generic non reassuring kind of Email to everyone. So. And if you go back and read the New Yorker article, the allegations are pretty gross and damning. It's not just his behavior is appalling, and also the behavior of the men. He oversees equally appalling. So that's add. He's the CEO of huge, powerful media company, and it's hard to dislodge these people. So I guess seven weeks is fine. I mean, I think in an ideal world, we would. Like him to be removed more quickly. We'd probably like him to be removed without this enormous severance package he's going to get. But unfortunately, we don't yet live in that ideal world. I would say what's more interesting to me about this whole story though, is how this is going to affect the soap opera venues the national amusements Viacom. So to rewind a little bit the what is that? What is it? They do on soap operas like previously on Viacom. The big Sumner Redstone Viacom empire used to include CBS and then CBS go spun off as its own separate companies under less Menendezes leadership. And the rest of the company Viacom was a separate company. And then some that basically became incapacitated. He was replaced by his daughter, Sherry who wants to merge the two companies back together. Again, Moonves is completely opposed to this if moon Moonves leaves than it seems more likely that in the absence of his opposition that those two companies will be matched again, does anyone care about this is important whether they're set for over there joined? I think a number of people at the companies care about it. I mean, share Redstone certainly does she wants to put them back together mostly because she wants to sell them and. Selling them as a combination. She'll get a higher premium almost certainly. Then she would get doing selling the both separately because I think the thinking at the time was CBS was the loser and not other companies we're going to do well, but then it turned out the reverse was exactly, yeah. Part of the reason that CBS unless moon vez and his team didn't want Viacom to become part was because there would be a bit of an albatross around their neck..

"And I know I know this is this is a priority for you and the focus with you when when you're working with your children, it's I feel like that, you know, and I knew a lot of wellness you talk about is about optimal health and anti-age. Ching, even as I follow your work so much. I have like my Viacom test here on my desk, my my Nanno and everything. I use all these resources, and those are those are so important. And I would say is people think, for example, children the fastest learners on the planet, which they which they are right. They can pick up a musical instrument that could pick up laying which is faster and one of the reasons why they play. But when I say this to audiences, they often say, oh, no, I stopped playing because I grew older, but I don't actually think that's accurate. I don't think you stop playing because you grew older. I think it's the opposite. I think you grew older because you stop playing and I feel like that some at some point in our life, maybe when children was like all I wanna go out and play or I'm gonna hang, or they asked her friends that you go out and play. But later on, it's like, oh, do you wanna go hang out and we start changing that language. But I feel like when we're playing a natural state when we had that sense of wonder and windy, we ever feel though. Those those feelings? I believe all learning, state dependent all learning state dependent that if you wanna know one of the keys to having a long term memory information, it self is very boring. It's forget -able, but information tied to emotion becomes a long term memory because we all know this right from personal experience. There could be a song that could take you back to when you're a kid. There could be a food that takes you back to win your child. There could be a fragrance that could take you back twenty your child because information is forgetful. But information combined with emotion becomes a long term memory. So all learning state dependent, and that's why I love play because in that state of wonder, right on my favorite poets Rumi has this quote that said, sell your cleverness for builder -ment sell your cleverness for bewilderment. I mean, when's the last time you felt bewildered about something or curious about something or fascinating fascinated. It's just like children are so engaged with the process and they not. I'm afraid to fail even children as you watch them learning how to walk they, they don't ever see. They don't try like three times in like, oh, I failed. It is never gonna try this again, right? That would be ludicrous, but adults is all the time in kids. Adults would take a dance class. They'll take a voice clouds. They'll take a programming coding class and they're not good at first, and they'll be like they don't wanna look bad and they're always concerned about everyone else's opinions and their expectations. And here's the thing. If you, you can go broke buying into the opinions and expectations about others. I was working years ago with Jim Carrey. I helped to actors, speed read scripts, had better focused on said, remember their lines in fractional time, and I remember we were in his kitchen more.

I'm not saying it's not going to go. I think ultimately be who. Takes the first plunge buys that that's when media gets a bunch of thought. This would happen the minute, the AT and t. Time Warner ruling came down. Yeah, hasn't happened. I think you're right. I think once the first deal happens, then I think I think if you look at via by the way, the bankers are all peddling this right now. Anyway, the only difference between the Bank or presentations of whether it's on eleven by fourteen or you know, twelve by whatever. And you know, it's, it's, they're all the same charts. I think it'd be looking at Viacom. For example, if you're looking at a the reason for the for the combination, which doesn't make sense necessarily strategically to stay alive is that CBS is probably an easier to sell them. It's own Viacom with the cable. Networks are harder, but the combined gives you the leverage of retreads, but it also allows you to MTV networks because you have to get to CBS, right? This is the logic. The doesn't want to say out loud and I don't. I think she believes but doesn't want to say allow which will work with anymore. I want to sell EM TV. I can't sell MTV on its own or the maybe the. Maybe the value of CBS goes down a little bit of smashed together with MTV, but to use value goes up enough to cover it. It makes a lot of sense for her in all, you know disclosure, she's one of the redefined Besters and I know her well, but I don't have any inside information on a Viacom, but the cable businesses challenged the MTV brand is not where it used to be Nickelodeon looking for senior executive right now to run the company. Whereas CBS you know, Leslie has had the one of the probably the greatest track record in the history of programming. So they have solid shows in the of the NFL which is a must have.

Years time against a perfect So many people have told me oh you finish a little to food because there's a crazy. Going on. Right now on if you're out of extra chapter while you can For the paperback version exactly okay how Sumner Redstone doing right now Well not that, well he's, in very, ill health I can't talk eat. Or right and he you know he can only really communicating grunts we do know that he had an ipad. Loaded, with clips of his voice attached to? Buttons. Such. As yes no an f you By the. Way I think you had an article yesterday in the journal which says that the national amusements which is a, holding company trust says it really summed or has the only, vote that counts and you just said he's a complete vegetable almost Well that's an attention at the heart of this battle for quite some time now national, news been full say well he he's a soul of the, national abusing of his eighty percent of national, daughter His daughter Sherry own twenty percent. And, the total board and national amusements it votes on whether they should for. Example, so but biggest companies that, they, own CBS Viacom but you put your point to a core tension that over now Three, years of. Legal, battling hasn't gone away we'll talk some sex. Later but what what do to me this is a corporate governance Scandal and you go through all this stuff whether it's, the compensation for some ner keeping moon Verizon. CBS trying to strip national, amusements of its majority share control? Sumner having that Seoul vote Do you see that this is a corporate governance. Scandal absolutely it is and the real scandal, at the heart, of it and I must. Say you know legally has, not been declared incapacitated that, no one has seen or heard from him math has a very small. Circle in, years and in fact in is currently go fight one of his longtime friends if, whatever to visit him took a video of him trying to document his medical condition in January and now of course they're fighting about whether relief that public has been submitted to the. Court but the fact that that was even an act, that was considered damning I think tells you a lot about, his current situation and that has been, a situation for, quite, some time so the question is all the people around summer Redstone who do this And his condition what did they do when they add that knowledge that's the that's the core question. Going back at least three years and it doesn't really? Reflect. Particularly well. On anyone in the empire no in fact I'm. Always interested you notice, that when, the CEO's or wherever needed some there to be competent he was when they needed. Him to be incompetent he was it's amazing, what you see, from one lawsuit to the. Next is people saying oh, he was completely competent until, six weeks ago two weeks ago I sit the minute after he made. This very, key decision that was advocated for me he lost it completely one of his former, companions basically made that argument and then the former CEO of Viacom Philippe Amman made that same argument which is just no it's it's stream lazy and recently the it's come out that. The CBS c. o. Iannello who is supposed to be, moon busy success That you some kind of secret. Text capability to try to get the board members? To seize power from national museum yes so they have to disappearing techs tiger tax dies attacks with driving the now that there's there's. Litigation, going out, of course the. Whole point of discovery is to find those Email messages back and forth and, they had if key communication for plotting what Syria. Redstone the. National alleging is a coup is disappearing it's very challenging they have recovered some, of, those messages I guess the disappearing text wasn't. That disappearing and you see the number two over there CBS Joe Iannello expressing how much he wants to. Be the number one. At least that's what national claiming we have not, seen the tax because they're still redacted let. Me ask you this when they split off Viacom, and CBS Viacom was to be the growth engine and CBS more of a utility like a dividend stock it's ended up, the reverse Is that. In your mind because of les Moonves. His talent in good measure yes I mean that's he is extremely talented programming executive he. Did it amazing job turning the CBS network around from last place to, first place he is excellent talking to Wall Street minutes expectations squeezing out of those local. TV stations that verse compensation it will be like the call it but basically getting a taste of the cable Bill that we're all paying every month even though. In a CBS broadcast network He. Has been a great operator also what happened outside of whatever he did is. That. Around the, time the CBS Viacom split in two. Thousand six the landscape shifted and TV the five hundred channel cable bundle slowed in in. Growth in the advertising on cable also slow and it was a big secular change that came into wallet dot com then it really started awhile, in twenty eleven with the rise of net flex and it's never recovered all right let's return for a second corporate governance Six women accused les Moonves. Of sexual. Harassment why is he still in office Wow he is very powerful he is beloved. By many in Hollywood and UPS, has announced. That they are doing an investigation they've hired. A law for cetera et cetera They say that they're taking it seriously, but you'll notice you, do not see a lot of people from the creative community coming out criticizing in. Fact you've seen a few women inside, the empire support him not a, vast number but a. Few and, then kind of crouched wait and see attitude from everyone else and the reason is because you know if you come for the king you better not miss you know people, are are worried that if. If, he survives this which. Every bit of his posture makes it seem like he thinks he's going to that they're toast. If you don't they come out, against him That leads, into a good parts I did her up that the harassment is bad enough but he appears her. He's alleged, to a blocked their careers and sort of destroyed them, that way that strikes, me is even worse almost and he he vehemently denies this that part of New. York restoring where where the core of, those core accusations are however you, know we've done reporting. On this, and there will be more that even setting aside sex or sexual advances the entire culture of CBS is is one of intense loyalty and retribution and if. You cross lessening, does your debt to him That's? What was that known by the way generally I would say that they, have they have had this. Sort of mafiosos swagger that they worn very proudly for a long time. Because you. Know this is Hollywood it's. It's hardcore making you want people, to fear you a little bit and in in years of very positive profiles lessening there's always been. Sprinkled in a sort of a good thing you know, he's an old old school operator he's incredibly effective heat demand loyalty across him haha but now that. These accusations are out there all of that takes, on a slightly different cast do you do you think that the fact that these were from the nineteen, eighties, he should, get some slack I think that's absolutely part of what people are grappling with right now they are. The accusations are very old and in addition to the one the ones. That the New Yorker there, is a separate Los Angeles Police department investigation for, women who also came forward with an accusation from the eighties so I. I think that there is a cultural right. Now, where people at Hollywood are saying. Does everything have to be is every one of these accusations have to be career ending is there no gradations, of Harvey Weinstein. On one and other people somewhere else but that that is completely going on separate from his power and and it is. Real because none of the accusations with the exception of the. One from, the Los Angeles were filed at, the time you, know there there was no complaints. There were settlements which makes it very very, hard to report and also to judge and we'll. Say that? That that investigation from one thousand nine hundred six with the LAPD Munoz, says he told the board. And the board claims not to have known about it.

"And so I tell us a little bit about how he comes into power with with the companies that we that we now associated with the Paramount's in the Viacom's of the world. So he spent an entire lifetime as just a regional theatre executive. He could have easily retired, but in the later years he made some very smart investments on media companies in the seventies and eighties that, right. He was like buying up stock, constantly of smaller companies to the point where he became a significant shareholder in some of these firms, right? So the back in the day, FOX studio with its own public company, Columbia was owned public company before they were all gobbled up by all these conglomerates, and so he could go see Star Wars say, oh, that's a good movie. He would get an advance peek at it because he owned movie theaters, walk across the street, call us stockbroker by a bunch of FOX stock. And then when FOX went through the roof, you'd make a killing, wow, no insider trading fashions, right? Not at all right. There's no question that's what was going on, but he made a big pile of money to do that doing that. And in the mid eighties, there was this company Viacom, no-one re- I mean, it was not a famous company that put only just bought MTV which was very fledgling. The management of Viacom was trying to do their own leveraged buyout to take it over themselves, and he thought the price was too low and he had sort of a massive position in that company and he decided, let's go for it. Let's do a takeover. And so out of nowhere he took over this company using his family theater chain as equity. There's really no way to talk about him without talking about the family saga aspect of this, and it strikes me that one of the great ironies of his business career is that he structured all these companies in such a way to protect himself from outside influence by giving his family various holdings. But that strategy completely backfires when the family goes eight shit on him. Well, I mean, you could say that he was not the best family member. He's certainly not the father or or son, and so. So you know, it's sort of a story of him elbowing aside one family member after another, especially his brother to get more and more control of the family theater company until he had total control and could go to after Viacom. But yes, he had this dream that he was in a control these assets after he died through it through savvy estate planning, I can tell enough lawyers what to do so that they, my ears can't sell CBS Viacom and that this will all stay in the family. And there is a trust and it's all there for the benefit of the grandchildren, but he just didn't manage his personal relationships, not very well. Well, he was sort of openly living with another woman for like twenty years, at least at least. Yeah. Yeah. Maybe like thirty thirty basically had a second family, right, right. And then and then gets another girlfriend beyond her. So she gets pissed, yes. Yes. I mean, it's just it's just really nuts. Yeah. I mean, one of the daughters of the second family named her kid, middle name Sumner yeah, I'm just to give you some sense like it was and then we have the crazy night in the boss. I'm I don't mean to make fun of it, but the crazy night in the Boston hotel, which until I read your account, I hadn't realized quite how complex that evening was so so to tell us that story. So this is some nurse favorite story. It's his set of formative tale that in nine hundred seventy nine, he was in the Copley plaza hotel. Partying with some theater executives wakes up to the smell of smoke hotels is on fire.

"People he we need to find someone to partner with now too that's right i mean i think that there's some of the thinking now is that if you're a smaller studio in hollywood um you know if you want to compete you might have to find another studio to partner up with i mean even the universal studios which is one of the larger studios in hollywood meena some analysts are saying maybe they'll have to find a partner certainly there's studios like sony viacom's paramount pictures you know mgm there's other studios that are smaller some of them are independent and ina thinking just is that this is a game where the bigger fish are going to have the advantage and you might need to do a deal in order to keep up everything the east said to what extent shouldn't be talking about the regulators at this point looking at this deal particularly in lines of 18 t time warner and we know perhaps this politics the specifics involved enough but in terms of this kind of deal took great extent we're talking horizontal integration verse versus that which is is more traditional vertical i mean we have tools questions day when you'll you throwing the walmart word around right i mean bob igor he took pains to say when the analysis deal this is gonna be good for consumers is going to allow us to deliver this yeah was this content the way people want any more innovative ways but i don't think that this is a slam dunk in washington and this is going to necessarily cell through especially with what we've seen with at t time warner which is a slightly different deal but it does involve warner brothers studio which is a sizeable studio and there is politics i guess you could say i mean rupert murdoch could just did this deal the disney is very close with donald trump apparently donald trump's spokesperson said last week this is going to be good for jobs which is very different from this cnn deal with at t and time warner where he's been very outspoken against it in its justice department's now suing to block it things are definitely not meeting in in media and entertainment industry carrying thank you thank you you're listening to bring back peace this week coming up with the president of tacky.

"You know this could be offered through the distributors charter comcast could sell this as sort of an addon package for broadband subscribers um so i mean that is something that that discoveries looking at uh you know another piece of this for if whether discovery get scripts or viacom get scripts mean there's a big international opportunity for um you know channel like hdtv that just now starting to kind of uh launch its channel outside the us and discovery and viacom have pretty big um footprints already around europe paul what are some reasons that a deal doesn't make sense for either these companies well i think i all you have to recognize that you're dealing with a family controlled company scripts networks describes family controls proxy ninety percent or ninety two percent of the vote here so and that was one of the stumbling blocks for discovery script still happening about three years ago so you have to make sure that it well you have to really probably pay a very big premium to convince the family to give up the ownership here so this is not an easy deal because of the family ownership um and you can even make the argument that proforma four you know viacom buying scripts discovery buying scripts the combined company even then is isn't really big enough to survive in this world that um um that they're perhaps even a bigger transaction is is needed here so um some not by any stretch of imagination a done deal um i think when he talked about of viacom for example you have to talk about the redstone family and all the uncertainty that.

"All who do you think has the upper hand discovery viacom so this is a tricky one because i think the they were problems with both buyers and that and therefore while the market seems to be pretty confident that a deal is going to happen here i am less confident i can look i reported this story so i can say that there is a sales process going on but scripts has been perennial he for sale three years ago discovery almost bought scripts and that deal fellow park so there is some logic there that discoveries at least interested and discovery has a lot of programming that is geared toward men in general and scripts as a lot of programming that is geared toward women in general so there there is sort of a natural fit there but that deal didn't get done for reason in part because there was a bid to ask difference and now now if if scripts is running a sales process you'd imagine again discovery would have to pay up and discoveries controlled or at least not quite controlled but let's say thirty percent of the votes controlled by john malone who is not known to bid up in auction so that is a problem with discovery viacom's problem is if you take a look at viacom shares you only have to go back until about marcher so when via cobb was trading at about forty six dollars a share their now trading at thirty six dollars a share so any deal with viacom would probably be at least some component of that would be stock and they sort of missed their chance to use their currency well there now they're company is about fourteen gene fourteen and a half billion dollar mark of cap company scripts is about a let's say of nine point eight nine point nine is almost ten billion dollars on care company it will be a huge deal for viacom and they wouldn't be using their stock at its high price so that's probably the problem with viacom they're just from a financial sample this would be an enormous bet viacom almost merged with cbs is scripts really the right bet i dunno doesn't this also lead to sherry redstone so this control issues on both brought to your point is going to say you need a genealogical assistant here because there are a lot of.
