Cheddar Afternoon Business Update 11/14: Buffalo Wild Wings sale

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK -

A private equity firm is looking to buy Buffalo Wild Wings for more than $2.3 billion.

The company went public in 2003 and has taken a bit of a hit because chicken prices are going up. There is no word on whether Buffalo Wild Wings will take the deal.

Meanwhile, Google is taking a hard line on how it treats extremist content on its YouTube platform.

The company will now remove all content that includes people or groups that have been deemed as "terrorists" by the U.S. or British governments, not just the videos that explicitly promote hate or show violent acts.

Lastly, Facebook is adding more original content, this time with the help of Bill Murray.

Murray and his brother are working on an unscripted 10 part series called 'Extra Innings."They will take a road trip across the United States visiting a bunch of minor league baseball teams.

Bill Murray, a known Chicago Cubs fan, says that the series is "a little something to fill baseball fan's off-season hole in the heart."
