Jeff Bewkes Plays Coy About Time Inc. and Meredith Talks

The media has been discussing the Time Inc. and Meredith merger for weeks now, but Jeff Bewkes, CEO of Time Warner, is still dodging the issue.

Bloomberg reports that when Bewkes was asked about the combo, he replied, “The press is very active. Who knows if they know what they’re talking about.”

Allow us to answer that: You, Jeff Bewkes, are the person who knows if we know what we’re talking about. And the only reason we know anything is because a Time Inc. publication — Fortunereported it.

So there you go. The more you know.
