Become a NEW SUBSCRIBER and begin with Liberty Media’s Brilliant iHeart Strategy here.  

If you’ve been thinking about subscribing and would like to access this story, let me tell you what you will get …

  • How Liberty Media’s John Malone has a lock on the iHeart bankruptcy not Bob Pittman and Bain.

  • But Liberty is not willing to pay more than $1 billion for iHeart -- how it plans to steal the company for pennies.
  • When Liberty got control of Sirius they went it alone without Mel Karmazin, remember?  If they could live without a master media operator like Karmazin, what happens to Pittman?  Turns out it’s complicated.
  • Okay, let’s just blurt this out – why does a smart guy like Malone want increasingly irrelevant media companies. Is it just low prices or does he know something other moguls don’t know.
