According to MultiChannelNews, Dolan has taken Rainbow Media
and Rainbow Sports off the market yesterday pending shareholder's
meeting this Friday....I am pretty sure the entire RM, except the
MSG unit, will still be sold to the highest bidder(s). It's just a
matter of time now....

The Fox Sports New England situation is somewhat uncertain now.
The FSNE's other major shareholder -- AT&T -- also announced yesterday that it will be
selling off all of  its interests in US-based cable networks, including Fox
Sports New England and NECN here. That's in addition to slashing thousands
of jobs in the bleeding AT&T Broadband unit, nation's larger cable operator.
