  • NBC parent Comcast (CMCSA) has bought out Microsoft's (MSFT) 50% stake in MSNBC.com, and has already rebranded the site as NBCNews.com. Financial terms weren't disclosed, but sources say the stake changed hands for ~$300M. (previously)  [View news story]
    Thank god. Comcast NBC may be able to get rid of the radicals on that cable network. and start reporting the news objectively. The radicals can move to Al Gore's Network where the viewership will remain the same.

  • The NYT shines a light on a nice little racket that doctors have got going in some states, where they're allowed to dispense drugs to patients at massive markups. E.g. heartburn pill Zantac costs 35 cents a pop in a drug store but $3.25 in a surgery. It's costing taxpayers, insurance companies and employers hundreds of millions a year.  [View news story]
    This high drug price is like the alleged $600 toilet seat. It may be overpriced but the costs of specification, procurement, integration, storage etc is calculated in the cost. Is unfortunate that the news media for the most part doesn't focus on the real wastes of money.
