Report: CBS submits low bid for Viacom

CBS has submitted a bid to merge with Viacom, its former sister company, that is below market value, sources tell CNBC. Reuters reported Monday that a lower bid was to be expected.

Why it matters: The move shows that CBS clearly feels its position in the market is more valuable than Viacom's, as Reuters noted Monday when it first broke the news.
