Re: Media Mogul Sumner Redstone has died

Looking at various obituaries, he doesn't seem to have had a single friend. Just competitors and employees.

Rosebud.

Questions have surfaced in recent years about Mr. Redstone’s mental standing. To help him communicate, some people who recently have met with him say that he has an iPad loaded with snippets of his voice, connected to buttons for words or phrases including “yes,” “no” and “fuck you.

You have to give him credit for supplying what we love. It takes an empire like the one he built to fund a big budget movie or series.

Christopher Plummer should play him in a movie. He could just use the same character research he did for All the Money in the World.

Re: Media Mogul Sumner Redstone has died

I thought he was from the South but came from Boston.

Was he responsible or gave the go ahead for MTV to not play music videos?
