CBS vs. Howard: Sah-Sah-suey

200509_lesmoonves.jpg
Our initial reaction to Howard Stern‘s assertion that CBS chief Leslie Moonves has a “personal vendetta” against him was to scoff.

Per Reuters, it claims “multiple breaches of contract, fraud, unjust enrichment, and misuse of CBS Radio broadcast time” as well as damages from Sirius for unfair competition and interference with Stern’s CBS contract.prev48.jpg

How much in damages? $500 million.

But that’s to confuse the issue: Les doesn’t have anything personal against you, Howard. He has something against ex-CBS radio chief turned Sirius CEO Mel Karmazin, and if he has to crush you in the process?

Well, then that’s the way the Baba-ball baba-bounces.
