I agree. A very slanted article. I wonder if Rage is a staff writer for them.Originally posted by cnsf
Agreed. This appeared to be an Anti-Charlie article rather than an objective one. BusinessWeek doesn't like the merger much, I believe.
Gee, I wonder how Charlie kept the fact of this explosion from everyone, including shareholders. So much for BW's research and credibility. Obviously the are referring to the problems with Echostar IV's solar arrays, hardly an "explosion upon liftoff". Do you think I should inform "Ron" of the error of his ways? Nah, if he didn't learn anything in Journalism School, I suspect he wouldn't even listen.BusinessWeek Online

"Indeed, he has made litigation something of an art form, suing everyone from the major TV networks to the insurance carrier for a satellite that exploded upon liftoff in 1998."
Even if the deal is dead, it's going to be years before GM sees a penny of that money since Charlie is going to fight them tooth and nail in every court in the countryOriginally posted by markh
It would be a horrible irony if it falls apart and the money E* pays Hughes would allow GM to sell Hughes to Murdoch cheaper than before. DOH!
