Hank Greenberg must be in need of some attention.
My colleague Tom Lowry and I will be weighing in at greater length on this tomorrow (UPDATE: It’s here), but should you have access to TheStreet.com, Jim Cramer sums it up nicely here. (I think this post sets a record for highest percentage of links behind a firewall. Sorry!)
UPDATE 11/30: Greenberg issues sorta-denial late afternoon of 11/29; his rep says he has “no present intention of significantly increasing his holdings.” WSJ has more backstory on his reaching out to Morgan Stanley’s John Mack, and interest in, oh, 17 or 18 more newspaper and media companies here—and, yes, that’s another firewalled link!
