GE/Dow Jones Spin Out?

Wednesday, May 02, 2007 | 10:45 AM

One of the questions that came up in yesterday's News/GE/Dow Jones discussion was the spin out of GE's non-core media properties.

Here's a short list of holdings that could fit into the NBC Universal spinout:

NBC Network

NBC Universal-Television-Group (Television production and syndication)

Cable Networks:  CNBC, MSNBC, Bravo, Sci-Fi Channel, USA Network, etc

• NBC Local Affiliates (full list here)

Universal Pictures

Universal Studio Theme Parks

Now add to that list the full run down of Dow Jones properties: WSJ, Barron's, Dow Jones News Wires, Factiva.

That's a rather compelling stand alone media conglomerate freed from the conflicts and obligations of a industrial parent company . . .

Interesting conjugation " break up of a conglomerate and the buying spree of Mr Rupper Murdock", they both drive memory of the year 1987 when interest rates climbing up conglomerates were no longer the safe pattern of businesses and the streaming by expertise the mantra.The media's group's treasury thinning at a alarming point (Mr Murdock has forgotten?)
