Huffpo Takes on Sharon Waxman

Sharon Waxman reported Comcast had struck a deal to buy NBC Universal. This “exclusive” made everyone freak out and then shoot off releases and talk to other reporters saying it wasn’t true. Waxman updated her story to soften the language. Nikki Finke commented on it with no soft language whatsoever. Waxman is still sticking to her guns that there were talks of this nature.
