As I pointed out in another place, this could even be structured to
give stockholders a choice as to how much of which resulting company
they wanted to own, so they're not stuck selling (and potentially
taking an unwanted capital gain on their own tax returns).  That
probably matters a lot to the Redstone family, although legally their
representatives on the board are required to act in the best interest
of all shareholders, not just the Redstones.
