Verizon says some of its media assets are so useless it won’t try to sell them - Recode
Verizon media boss K. Guru Gowrappan has surveyed everything that his company owns and has concluded that some of it has zero value. It’s cheaper to simply shut it down than to find a buyer.

Verizon admits defeat with $4.6bn AOL-Yahoo writedown • Bloomberg
Scott Moritz:
<p>The wireless carrier slashed the value of its AOL and Yahoo acquisitions by $4.6bn, an acknowledgment that tough competition for digital advertising is leading to shortfalls in revenue and profit.

The move will erase almost half the value of the division it had been calling Oath, which houses AOL, Yahoo and other businesses like the Huffington Post.

“The hype of Oath has been over for some time,” Wells Fargo analyst Jennifer Fritzsche said in a note Tuesday. She likened the writedown to “ripping off the Oath band-aid.”

The episode offered a silver lining for investors. Rather than attempt a megadeal like AT&T Inc.’s $85bn acquisition of Time Warner Inc., Verizon only spent about $9.5bn in the past three years buying fading web giants. Though the bet hasn’t paid off, it at least stumbled on a smaller scale.

The revision of the Oath division’s accounting leaves its goodwill balance - a measure of the intangible value of an acquisition - at about $200m, Verizon <a href="https://www.sec.gov/Archives/edgar/data/732712/000073271218000060/a12-118xk.htm">said in a filing Tuesday</a>.</p>

Astonishing to think of the inflated value there. And people were wondering if we were in a tech bubble?

“The peak was two years ago,” said Ken Doctor, analyst at Newsonomics. “Verizon showed poor judgment in buying Yahoo when it did. If Mic was a whimper, the Oath announcement is the bang.”

Hippocratic Oath - Wikipedia
The Hippocratic Oath is an oath historically taken by physicians. It is one of the most widely known of Greek medical texts. In its original form, it requires a new physician to swear, by a number of healing Gods, to uphold specific ethical standards. The Oath is the earliest expression of medical ethics in the Western world, establishing several principles of medical ethics which remain of paramount significance today. These include the principles of medical confidentiality and non-maleficence. Although the ancient text is only of historic and symbolic value, swearing a modified form of the Oath remains a rite of passage for medical graduates in many countries.
