Media briefs

Selling Southern Star not straight forward ... Hammer the message ... Do you hear a reporter clapping? ... Even lamer than Second Life ... Mr T Snickers ad pulled for being offensive to gay people.

Selling Southern Star not straight forward. Nice for Fairfax Media to update us on yesterday’s Crikey scoop that the company was thinking of selling Southern Star, the TV production business it bought last year in the break up of Southern Cross Broadcasting (along with the AM radio talk stations owned by Southern Cross). The SMH reports:

Bruce Wolpe, a spokesman for Fairfax, said Southern Star was a “prime asset and is performing strongly”. For several months, the company and Southern Star had been “exploring options to further improve the business and maximise the company’s value,” he said. “This could involve a trade sale, strategic partnership or retaining Southern Star within Fairfax Media.”
