Would Michael Bloomberg Buy CNN?

cavutobloombergFollowing his fiery interview on CNN, former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg was interviewed by Neil Cavuto on his Fox News show. In this interview, CNN came up as a topic of discussion. As 21st Century Fox chairman Rupert Murdoch looks to acquire Time Warner, in which case CNN would have to be spun off, Cavuto asked the finance and media mogul if he’d be interested in buying CNN.

“I can’t think of why we would be interested in buying CNN. We’ve got a business, we’ve got to reinvest in our business and work very hard. I just did an interview in the same building with Wolf Blitzer on CNN. A lot of people like CNN, a lot of people watch it. Ted Turner had a great concept when he started it.”

“You never say never, but in this case I can say probably never.”
