The top leadership of Cablevision Systems—Chairman Chuck Dolan, President-CEO James Dolan and Chief Operating Officer Tom Rutledge—was seen leaving the Manhattan headquarters of Time Warner last week, Blink’s spies report. Was a big deal brewing between the media giant and the cable company? Was it routine business? A courtesy call on new Time Warner CEO Jeffrey Bewkes? Time Warner’s spokesman declined to say who they saw or what they discussed. Time Warner and Cablevision have myriad business relationships, of course. “In this industry people get together all the time,” the TW spokesman said. A spokesman for Cablevision declined to comment.
