Time Warner: AOL (Un)officially for Sale

Silicon Alley Insider is reporting that while at a meeting with about a dozen senior members of AOL’s staff yesterday, Time Warner CEO Jeff Bewkes left at least one member of management with the impression that the company is for sale, a source close to the company said:

The report said that regardless of what Bewkes said, a rapid sale wouldn’t be surprising given the reports of Yahoo-AOL and Microsoft-AOL talks in recent weeks.
