Cablevision sale reportedly an 'emotional journey' for the Dolans

For Cablevision (NYSE: CVC) founder Charles Dolan, the decision to sell the cable company he started 42 years ago was an "emotional journey" that took a sail around the Mediterranean to sort out. The emotions also ran high for the man who bought Cablevision, European telco magnet Patrick Drahi, who took long walks and bike rides around Manhattan to sort out his feelings.

Who knew the captains of the cable industry were so sensitive?

Apparently, the New York Post's Claire Atkins is in touch with the inner emotional lives of these hard-nosed executives. She detailed the run-up to last week's $17.7 billion takeover of Cablevision in this report.
