Articles From: UPDATE: Fox withdraws Time Warner bid to UPDATE: FTSE 100 seesaws on Scotland fears

Fox's stock (NWSA) (NWS) had fallen about 11% since news broke last month that it had made a takeover offer for Time Warner (TWX) valued at $85 a share, or about $80 billion, in a mix of cash and stock.
