Discovery directors buy up more shares, as another exec steps down
A second Discovery Communications Inc. board member has bought up shares of the Silver Spring media giant in just the last two months, while one of its C-suite executives is stepping down at the end of this year. Discovery (DISCA) — whose stock has shed more than 20 percent of its value since its announcement it would buy Scripps Networks Interactive Inc. in an $11.5 billion deal — got a roughly 4 percent bump in share value after board member and cable industry warhorse John Malone disclosed Thursday he had bought another $6.56 million worth of company shares. It follows another stock purchase, totaling $1.58 million, by Discovery board member David Wargo, president of Wargo & Co., a private investment firm.

Poland slaps $415,000 fine on TVN24 over coverage of protests in parliament
Poland's media regulator has slapped a 1.5 million zloty ($415,000) fine on leading news broadcaster TVN24 over its coverage of protests in parliament last year, prompting accusations that it aims to muzzle free media. Critics said the KRRiT media watchdog had punished the U.S.-owned broadcaster in an effort to mute its criticism of the ruling Law and Justice (PiS) party amid speculation the Polish state may take over TVN24. Earlier this year Polish tax authorities demanded that TVN, TVN24's parent company, pay an allegedly unpaid 110 million zloty tax, claiming irregularities in a transaction when the group took over a rival in 2012.
