    CBS suspends CEO search, fuelling Viacom merger expectations

    Ianniello, who was previously the company's chief operating officer, became interim CEO in September after the CBS board ousted then-CEO Leslie Moonves over accusations of sexual harassment and assault. Ianniello's interim role included a clause stating that if he was not named permanent CEO by June 30, 2019, he could leave the company with severance estimated to reach $70 million, according a source familiar with the matter. Speculation over the past few months about CBS considering for the third time a tie-up with Viacom hindered its search for a CEO as candidates worried about how their position could be jeopardized in a potential merger, sources familiar with the matter have told Reuters.

    CBS Clears a Subplot for Its Reunion With Viacom

    The broadcaster said on Tuesday that it was no longer looking for a permanent successor to Leslie Moonves, its disgraced former CEO who left in September in the wake of numerous sexual-harassment allegations. Instead, Joe Ianniello, who had been Moonves’s No. 2, has agreed to stay on as acting CEO through the end of the year. The turn of events sends a strong signal that CBS is prepared to merge with Viacom Inc., which is how I suspected this would play out.

    CBS acting CEO Ianniello extends contract, board suspends CEO search

    CBS Corp. said late Tuesday Acting Chief Executive Joseph Ianniello has agreed to extend his role for six more months through Dec. 31, and "as a testament to the accomplishments" by Ianniello, the board has suspended its search for another chief executive officer. "Joe has demonstrated exceptional leadership during this time of unprecedented transition at CBS. He steadied the ship," the company's board said in a statement. Ianniello assumed the acting CEO role in September after being CBS's chief operating office since 2013. Shares of CBS rose 0.4% in the extended session, after ending the regular trading day up 0.5%. According to a report last week, CBS and Viacom Inc. are trying to resume merger talks, and in addition to agreeing to a price the two companies are also hammering out who would be CEO, Ianniello or Viacom CEO Robert Bakish, who has the support of Shari Redstone, whose National Amusements Inc. controls both CBS and Viacom.

    Trump’s Border Threats Snarl Truck Traffic

    The southern border isn’t closed, but it’s already a mess for trucks hauling goods from Mexico to the U.S., snarling traffic at some of the busiest frontier crossings in the world. A week of heated threats from Donald Trump to “close” the border means Mexican companies are rushing to get as much cargo into the U.S. as they can, in case of a shutdown. Meanwhile, as many as 750 U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers were reassigned to border patrol sectors in late March, limiting the personnel needed to allow for the flow of goods from south to north.

Dalio cited four major countries in the 1930s that “chose not to be democracies because they wanted leadership to bring order to the conflict.” While he’s not saying the U.S. will go there, it’s an unfair and unproductive issue that “threatens to split us,” he said.
