It's heard that Liberty Media seems to be making a hostile takeover of SIRI. No info beyond that right now.

Liberty filed legal paperwork that made a request. The gist was "Well, since we own 40%, please give us de-facto control of SIRI".

The financial websites are almost hysterical in their laughter about this.
