Vivendi Reaches 'Good Deal' in Bid Search

PARIS - Board members from Vivendi Universal emerged Tuesday from a meeting to weigh bids for the company's entertainment assets saying they were satisfied and had found a good deal.

"I think we are in front of a very good deal," said Vivendi board member Fernando Falco y Fernadez de Cordova.

He and other company officials gave no details on the deal. The company was to hold a news conference later Tuesday.

The board of the French media and utilities giant met in Paris to weigh bids from two final suitors for its U.S. entertainment businesses. One was General Electric Co.'s NBC; the other a group led by investor Edgar J. Bronfman Jr.

Published reports Monday indicated that NBC had a lead in the long-running auction for the Vivendi Universal Entertainment properties, which include the Universal film and TV studios, three cable TV networks and theme parks.

Rest assured, there is one main Cabal, and this is all engineered...

Notice that the media empires just keep getting bigger and bigger, and the likelihood of any independent companies keeps getting smaller and smaller?

NBC is looking good right about now, I think.

If completed, the deal would result in the creation of NBC Universal, which would be the nation's sixth-largest media company. It would include NBC's assets the broadcast network, local stations, the cable channels CNBC and MSNBC and the Spanish-language network Telemundo and Vivendi's movie and television studios; its cable networks like USA, Bravo, and Sci-Fi; and the Universal Studios theme parks.

Related to this -- NBC, CBS & FOX all spoke out today in support of the FCC's new guidelines about media ownership

How can anyone think it's a good idea to further consolidate our already limited (and biased!) media sources???
