    Paramount Fires TV Chief Over Allegations of Insensitive Remarks

    Paramount Television President Amy Powell, the executive behind such shows as “The Alienist” and “13 Reasons Why,” was ousted from the company over allegations that she made racially insensitive remarks. Jim Gianopulos, head of Paramount Pictures, said in a memo to staff that “multiple individuals came to us to raise concerns around comments made by Amy Powell in a professional setting.” After discussing the remarks with the Viacom Inc. division’s human-resources and legal teams, Paramount “made the decision to terminate Amy’s employment, effective immediately,” he said. Powell allegedly made the remarks during a discussion about the “First Wives Club” reboot, a project that features a mostly black cast, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

    CBS & Viacom: Buy One, Sell the Other

    CBS and Viacom had been going through rather tense deal negotiations when the shares got a boost from the ruling in favor of AT&T's (T) Time Warner acquisition, but now there's less optimism that the deal will happen. For his part, Miller calls an acquisition by CBS a "pipe dream" for Viacom, leading to his bearish position on the stock, which he calls a "value trap" hampered by poor programing choices and only minor changes that aren't enough to right the ship. Barron's is also more bullish on CBS's prospects without Viacom.

    [$$] Shari Redstone's Path to Power

    Another person who witnessed the encounter saw no hug, but did see Mr. Gifford cupping Ms. Redstone’s chin and speaking to her in a demeaning paternal manner. In the two years leading up to this lawsuit, Ms. Redstone had been doing something that no American woman had ever done before: actively controlling a media empire worth more than $30 billion. As the de facto leader of National Amusements Inc., the family holding company that owns nearly 80% of the voting shares of CBS and Viacom, she calls the shots at both companies, which she lately had been trying to nudge toward a union in the face of a rapidly consolidating media industry.
