Thoughts on Other Bids For MKTW

Some more instant thoughts on other potential bidders for MKTW (see stories below):

— FT (Pearson): Already own part share in MKTW. Would give it a very strong position in U.S., something it has been lacking against WSJ…

— Yahoo Finance: Even though it is among the most used consumer finance and biz sites, it has somehow lacked respect within the biz-fin media community, since it is, at heart, an aggregation play at best…MKTW would give it a boost. I doubt Yahoo would like to go into a pure media play with MKTW’s news operations. Doesn’t make sense…

— NYT: Well, they’re building up their tech site, and now business section would be the next step…

— CBS: No, please don’t…
