The New York Times had an interesting piece about how Comcast's Disney bid indicates that the balance of power in media has shifted again, and content is no longer king. Remember a few years ago when everything was content, content, content?

I'm fascinated by this potential merger. If it does go through I think its effects will be bigger than we all can imagine.

See, here's the thing: I can't imagine the regulatory agencies approving this deal without a lot of divestiture. Maybe making the company sell off the theme park"resort" and travel businesses. But even then, I don't know how they're going to sneak this one by the regulators.

On the other hand, I said the same thing about AOL and Time Warner -- and look how that turned out.
