Back To The Future For AOL
from the AOL-in-trouble? dept
An interesting article in Forbes that looks at the AOL-Time Warner merger to see if it made sense. The verdict isn’t in yet, but they seem doubtful. The argument is that they’re not growing the business. All they’re doing is propping up their earnings through acquisitions. There’s no evidence that their base of assets alone is producing anything that is really going to drive the business. Also, I have to admit that the Forbes editors did a great job finding the scariest possible picture of outgoing AOL-TW CEO Gerald Levin.
