Rupert Murdoch called AT&T chief about buying CNN (report)

21st Century Fox chairman Rupert Murdoch reportedly called AT&T chief executive Randall Stephenson twice in the past six months about purchasing CNN, according to Reuters.

According to one of Reuters’ sources, Murdoch called Stephenson twice, unprompted, on May 16 and Aug. 8 and on both occasions asked if CNN was for sale. Stephenson replied both times that it was not, according to the source.

Yesterday, Stephenson said publicly, “There is absolutely no intention that we would ever sell CNN.”

Yet another Reuters source pushed back, saying Murdoch had “zero interest” in owning CNN.
