Today's USA Today -- My Continuing Thoughts About Hulu's Likely "Winning" Suitor

A few days ago, USA Today had asked me for my thoughts about current speculation surrounding Hulu -- including its likely bidders to buy the company -- and the likely winner. A couple days back, Fox TV announced more content challenges for Hulu by withdrawing many popular shows for free viewing.

Jefferson Graham of USA Today asked me my continuing thoughts about the overall situation, which are found in two separate articles in today's USA Today.

Bottom line, all things being relatively equal in terms of price, of the three companies Jefferson Graham lists (i.e., Apple, Google and Yahoo!), the media companies behind Hulu would hand the reins over to Yahoo!, which it views as being the least threatening by far.
