Frustrated Case Willing To Spin Off AOL

from the just-give-it-back dept

It seems that Steve Case is getting pretty annoyed with all the stories questioning his position at AOL-Time Warner, and trashing the whole merger in the first place. He’s apparently been saying to friends (though, not necessarily seriously) if people are so upset about the merger, he’s willing to just take AOL back as a spinoff from Time Warner. It seems like that wouldn’t be the smartest move for Time Warner (though, not necessarily bad for Case). In the end, it would be a clear case of buying high and selling low. What the company really needs to do is stop all the political in-fighting, realize they’re a single entertainment company, and actually make use of the synergies such a diverse company provides. Of course, the chances of that happening seem slim.
