CYNOPSIS DIGITAL – TODAY’S TOP STORY:  Time Warner is moving close to reversing its disastrous acquisition of AOL by spinning off the company into a separate unit, according to a regulatory filing made by company. (Time Warner CEO Jeff Bewkes promised an announcement on the issue “very soon” on an earnings call yesterday.) Losses at AOL once again dragged revenue and earnings down at Time Warner, as revenue at AOL dropped by 23% due to deteriorating ad revenue and a further loss of dial-up subscribers. Time Warner’s cable, TV networks and movie businesses fared better, however, despite the ad slowdown. Triple-play customers (who subscribe for video, phone and internet services) grew by 146,000 during Q1 and now account for 22% of TWC’s total customers. Meanwhile discussions regarding the company’s “TV Everywhere” concept, which would allow paying subscribers to access cable TV content on multiple screens, are moving forward with distributors. The service could reach the trial stage by the second half of this year.  Full edition: CYN DIGITAL.  

CYNOPSIS KIDS – TODAY’S TOP STORY:  The Muppets of Plaza Sesamo and Mexican celebrities are addressing the new flu emergency in a series of pubic service announcements (PSA) aimed at kids.  Sesame Workshop and Mexico’s Grupo Televisa have produced four PSAs featuring the Plaza Sesamo Muppet’s Pancho and Lola as well as celebrities Lucero, Jorge Poza and Adrian Uribe, which empower kids with things they can do during this period.  The PSAs, which have already begun airing on Televisa, encourage kids to tell a parent if you feel sick, and if you are sick don’t go to school or outside, cover your mouth with a tissue or arm if you sneeze or cough and throw away that tissue in a covered trash can, and of course, wash your hands with soap and water several times a day for at least 20 second.  Plaza Sesamo’s Education and Research team worked with Mexico’s Ministry of Health to develop the PSA scripts.  The PSAs are being offered to several government organizations to extend the message in Mexico including the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Education, the Government Workers’ Social Security and Services Institute (el ISSSTE) and Mexico City’s public transit system.  Full edition: CYN KIDS
