Case accepts blame for AOL-Time Warner debacle | CNET News.com

Case accepts blame for AOL-Time Warner debacle | CNET News.com: "From Case's view, the blame starts with him.
'In retrospect, I probably wasn't the right guy to be the chairman of a company with 90,000 employees,' Case said during an event at the Computer History Museum. 'In retrospect, none of us were the right guys.'
Indeed, for Case and then-CEO of Time Warner Gerald Levin, the architects of the deal, grand visions of an Internet-charged media behemoth faded into the bland realities of turf wars and cutthroat politics. Case learned Time Warner's notorious culture of fiefdoms the hard way, as multibillion-dollar businesses bristled at the idea of working with their new AOL masters."
