In their latest blunder the Senate has called the wrong CEO to testify in the ATT/Time Warner merger hearings. As reported by CNET, it seems the Senate called Rob Marcus, the former CEO of Time Warner Cable, instead of Jeff Bewkes the CEO of Time Warner. The confusion may be understandable as Time Warner Cable was, in fact, a part of Time Warner at one time. However TWC was spun off into its own company back in 2008, and has nothing to do with Time Warner. I would expect that, out of anybody, the panel that is investigating whether or not the $85 Billion merger between two behemoth companies should take place, should probably know who the Chief Executives involved are. Then again with this Congress, perhaps my expectations are a bit too high. I suppose it could be worse, at least they didn’t call Tim Armstrong (the CEO of AOL).
