My Interview With Bloomberg M&A Reporter Ed Hammond / My Thoughts on IDTI

The event space is littered on a daily basis with rumors of deals and activism, the overwhelming majority of which are false.  In Part 1 of what I consider to be a MUST-LISTEN interview, Bloomberg M&A reporter Ed Hammond explains the role journalists play in the deal-process.  We discuss how incorrect journalism, for example the Nokia for Juniper story, makes it to press ONLY to be quickly refuted.   And lastly we talk sources and their motivations, which can range from vanity, to revenge.
