2:15 PM UPDATE: I’ve learned that 100 people are being laid off across “several divisions” of the A&E Television Networks yesterday and today “as a direct result of the merger”. It will make those employees feel so much better that management tells me it’s “no one in a decision making role.” A&E Television Networks in August acquired Lifetime Entertainment, and everything is now owned by the Disney-ABC Television Group, Hearst and NBC Universal. Big Media = Big Mergers = Big Mistakes.
