goofy,

I just did a scan of News Corp and TW. You know News Corp looks better than any of them.

If we are in a bear market or better yet a bear economy for now....one day we will come out of it....a long term hold on a property with the ability to corner quite a few advertizing dollars is not such a bad idea.

If in a decade News corp went from a $20 billion market cap to a $180 billion mcap that would obviously be 9 times your money. Say this were possible in the next 15 years...okay...

Via is mcapped at about $65 billion and TW is mcapped at $75 billion. Nine times those values over a 15 year period would be too extreme. There is also a clear arguement that Murdoch is running News corp pretty well.

What impressed me the most about Via was the local brands of radio and tv. Of course that overhead does not come cheaply. Murdoch's satellites may come cheaper. Perhaps what impressed me about Via I need like a hole in the head.

I donno......but when buying cheaper is better. News corp is not second rate in this race just because it is a factor of three or four times cheaper.

Good luck,

db
