No. I hope neither of you is involved in finance. The foundation offered $8 million cash plus $24 million over 30 years. The net present value, doing a little quick math in my head, would be about $16-20 million. Daystar offered $25.1 million in cash. So their offer would be worth about $5 to 9 million or so more than the foundation offer.
I'll put it in simple terms. If I offered to give you $1.00 now, and someone else offered to give you $2.00 in 30 years, which offer would you accept.
That being said, I'm not sure I'd call a lot of what Daystar puts on 'Christian programming'.
I agree with each of your points. (including the typical Daystar programming) Good post.
