BBG Watch Commentary
Since last year, BBG Watch has been reporting on Michael Lynton’s absence from BBG meetings, but it may have been questions from a Chicago Sun-Times reporter that finally forced him to resign last week.
“Michael Lynton, CEO of Sony Entertainment, Inc., stepped down from the Broadcasting Board of Governors on Thursday, after I raised questions this week about his lack of attendance at board meetings this year.
Lynton resigned before I posted anything but after the BBG and a spokesman for SONY knew that I was potentially writing about his attendance record.”
