Sources close to Seven West Media have rejected speculation that a merger with Fairfax Media is under consideration, stating that no deal is imminent. Recent media reports suggested that Fairfax is courting the TV and print media group, but the Seven source said Fairfax may be merely seeking to attract interest from other media companies. Fairfax had previously held discussions with Nine Entertainment Company, its partner in the Stan streaming video joint venture.
