Comcast betters Disney's offer to buy Fox 14.6.2018 DNA: India
Comcast has offered $65 billion for key film and television assets of Rupert Murdoch's 21st Century Fox, topping an offer from Walt Disney Co. for a deal that could create a dominant media-entertainment power. The move by Comcast, which is the largest US cable provider and also owns the NBCUniversal media group, opens up a new round of competition for the prized assets being shed by the Murdoch family empire. "Our proposal represents a premium of approximately 19 per cent to the value of Disney's offer as of noon today. We are highly confident in our ability to finance the transaction, and our offer includes no financing-related conditions," Comcast said in a letter to Rupert Murdoch and his sons Lachlan and James yesterday.

Roseanne Barr's racist tweet sparks furor, show revival shut down as consequence 30.5.2018 DNA: Mumbai
Walt Disney Co's ABC network on Tuesday swiftly canceled the popular US television comedy Roseanne after star Roseanne Barr incited outrage by comparing a black former Obama administration official to an ape in remarks on Twitter. The show, a revival of the 1990s hit Roseanne, was ABC's most widely watched prime time show for the TV season that ended last week. President Donald Trump has cited its huge viewership as evidence his supporters, who include Barr, want shows that speak to their concerns. "Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show," ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey said in a statement. In a since-deleted comment on Twitter, Barr compared Valerie Jarrett, a former adviser to President Barack Obama, to an ape. Barr wrote that if the Islamist political movement "Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby = vj." The actress, 65, apologized "for making a bad joke" about Jarrett, who is black and ...

Jay-Z moves past Sean "Diddy" Combs to become richest hip-hop artist 2.3.2018 DNA: India
Jay-Z has climbed past Sean "Diddy" Combs to rank as the world's wealthiest hip-hop artist thanks to heady champagne and cognac investments, according to data released by Forbes magazine on Thursday. The 48-year-old "Hard Knock Life" rapper and music mogul increased his estimated net worth in 2017 to $900 million, up by $90 million from the year before in the annual list compiled by Forbes. Combs, 48, who had been hip-hop's wealthiest artist since Forbes first released the list in 2011, grew his estimated $825 million fortune by a tepid $5 million last year, Forbes said. The primary driver of Jay-Z's wealth came from investments in luxury champagne brand Armand de Brignac and D'Usse cognac, while lukewarm trends in the vodka and cable television sectors weighed on Combs' investments in Diageo's Ciroc vodka and the TV network Revolt, Forbes said. Jay-Z's tenure at the top spot may be short-lived. Hip-hop's third-wealthiest figure, Dr. Dre, is expected to add a nine-figure windfall of Apple stock to his ...
