Bart Lauds Sony’s Stringer But Wonders How

Variety Editor Peter Bart unleashes on Sony Corp. chairman Howard Stringer in his column last Fridaystringer2.jpg.

Bart points out that Fox top dog Peter Chernin is about to sign another deal atop News Corp. He notes that 66-year-old Stringer is quietly signing on for three more years. So much for mandatory retirement. He also marvels at Stringer’s ability to continue existence as a non-Japanese Yank-Brit-Welshman.

While Bart wonders how Stringer can maintain, the executive was more than present cutting deals up at Sun Valley with Sony CFO Rob Wiesenthal last July. He seemed to have no intent of retiring, regardless of Bart’s posture.
