Media Mogul Retreat
Tom Taylor speculates about this year's confab in his column today: "Who’s flying their private jets to Sun Valley this week? The two top execs at CBS, Les Moonves and Joe Ianiello. Things might get awkward if they bump into Philippe Dauman of Viacom, who will sit on the board of the Redstone family trust that oversees both companies after Sumner’s passing. Current Disney chief Bob Iger will be there with COO Tom Staggs. So will the Murdochs, and Apple CEO Tim Cook."
I find this whole thing incredibly fascinating. These guys are all billionaires, and they all hate each other, yet they never miss a chance to attend. What on earth goes on at these meetings?
