NOT FOR SALE: In N.Y., Claire Atkinson noted incoming Time Warner Cable CEO Rob Marcus yesterday at the UBS event "slammed a Bloomberg report that made it look like he was ready to sell the company." Marcus "laid out his vision for the future of Time Warner Cable, even as potential bidders appear to be closing in" (NYPOST.com, 12/9). Marcus said that there "are 'clearly' programming cost and other benefits to cable industry consolidation, but indicated Time Warner Cable doesn't want to overburden its balance sheet with debt" (WSJ.com, 12/9).
