Time Warner Earnings Fall 34% (Dinosaur Media DeathWatch™)
The Street.com ^ | July 29, 2009 | Joseph Woelfel

Posted on 07/30/2009 6:31:35 AM PDT by abb

Time Warner (TWX Quote) said second-quarter earnings fell 34% to $519 million, or 43 cents a share, from $792 million, or 66 cents a share, a year earlier.

Adjusted earnings of 45 cents topped the estimates of analysts of 37 cents a share as surveyed by Thomson Reuters.

Revenue in the quarter fell 9% to $6.8 billion. At Time Warner's content group, which is made up of the networks, filmed entertainment, publishing and corporate segments, revenue declined 6%.

The content division saw adjusted operating income before depreciation and amortization rise 4% in the period.

The company said it's "on track" to spin off AOL around the end of the year.

Time Warner said again it continues to expect 2009 full-year adjusted earnings to be flat compared with adjusted earnings of $1.98 a share in 2008. Analysts expect 2009 earnings of $1.99 a share.

Ping. Actually, this story is from yesterday, but I was gone all day and it’s too good to not post.

Fear not. According to Drudge, our Glorious Leader will grace Time's front page for the 12th time this year. That is certain to give circulation a huge boost.

Order now to avoid the long lines ...

The more Time and Newsweek continue to publish *Obama’s picture on the cover the more their sales sink. More deathwatch for dinosaur media.

I can not believe that putting the Obamasia on the cover 12 times in 12 months didn't make them some money. Maybe they should start putting boobies on the cover like the British "news" magazines do to increase their readership.
