As quickly denied as put out. I wouldn't rule it out nonetheless.

Now that the TW folks have been back on top for awhile I think it's a sure bet the one thing they're trying to do is unload AOL. Just a matter of who bites and if they're able to keep 'em hooked.

<aside>That's an eye opening Forbes link -- talk about "above the fold!" And overall, must be nice to be able to plop in 350 square feet of advertising to 4 column-inches of editorial.</aside>

Thats one heck of a lot of cash reserve. Hard to call on what will happen with this one! From the article i just read, it sounds like AOL maybe struggling, but brings to its parent a $1bn of free cash, for the Media giant to play with.
