GE/Dow Jones Spin Out?

One of the questions that came up in yesterday’s News/GE/Dow Jones discussion was the spin out of GE’s non-core media properties.

Here’s a short list of holdings that could fit into the NBC Universal spinout:

NBC Network

NBC Universal-Television-Group (Television production and syndication)

Cable Networks:  CNBC, MSNBC, Bravo, Sci-Fi Channel, USA Network, etc

• NBC Local Affiliates (full list here)

Universal Pictures

Universal Studio Theme Parks

Now add to that list the full run down of Dow Jones properties: WSJ, Barron’s Marketwatch.com, Dow Jones News Wires, Factiva.

That’s a rather compelling stand alone media conglomerate freed from the conflicts and obligations of a industrial parent company . . .
