To those adept at reading corporate politics, the 1994 Time Warner Annual Report provided some food for thought. Jeffrey Bewkes, president and chief operating officer of HBO, was the only one pictured who was not a division head, an editor-in-chief or a chief executive. Since that time, Bewkes, 43, has come into his own. The 16-year HBO veteran was promoted to CEO status when HBO Chairman Michael Fuchs was appointed head of Warner Music last May.

Time Warner Inc.'s shareholders learned last week that Jeffrey Bewkes quietly approved a settlement 16 years ago to keep under wraps an incident involving a prized executive accused of choking a subordinate. The nearly $500,000 settlement could raise embarrassing questions for Bewkes -- poised to take the top job when Time Warner Chief Executive Richard Parsons retires next year -- at the company's annual stockholders' meeting today in Burbank on the Warner Bros. Studios lot. Bewkes, Time Warner's president, fired HBO Chief Executive Chris Albrecht last week in the wake of Albrecht's arrest for assaulting his girlfriend in Las Vegas and a story in the Los Angeles Times about the 1991 altercation Albrecht had with an underling with whom he was romantically involved.

John Billock, second in command at AOL Time Warner Inc.'s cable unit, can't forget the day he and Jeff Bewkes tried to sail the 20-odd miles from Martha's Vineyard to Nantucket Island back when they were executives at HBO. They set out in a small boat with no motor or compass. After five hours fighting dead-on winds in shoals, fog and heavy water, Bewkes declared: "Look, we're only halfway. We can keep going, but chances are 50-50 that we're going to die."

So much for synergy. For Warner Bros., the appointment of HBO chief Jeffrey Bewkes to oversee AOL Time Warner's entertainment units appears to signal a return to the days when the studio operated from its Burbank lot as an autonomous unit so long as it churned out hit films and TV shows. That approach differed markedly from the philosophy of the last 18 months since the America Online and Time Warner merger. Under now-departed AOL Time Warner Chief Operating Officer Robert W.
