Default Rupert Continues to take over all media

By MICHAEL LIEDTKE, AP Business Writer
1 hour, 10 minutes ago


SAN FRANCISCO - Yahoo Inc. is discussing a possible partnership with News Corp. in its latest effort to repel Microsoft Corp. or prod its unsolicited suitor into raising its current takeover bid, according to a person familiar with the talks.

ADVERTISEMENT

The specifics of the joint venture still hadn't been worked out, said the person who didn't want to be identified because of the sensitivity of the matter.

Both The Wall Street Journal and a prominent blog, TechCrunch, reported that News Corp. is interested in folding its popular online social network, MySpace.com, and other Internet assets into Yahoo — an idea that first came up last year. News Corp. owns The Wall Street Journal.

News Corp. and a private equity firm also would buy significant stakes in Yahoo in a complex deal designed to boost the Sunnyvale-based company's market value above Microsoft's initial bid of $44.6 billion, or $31 per share.

A Yahoo spokesman said the company continues to "carefully and thoroughly" evaluate alternatives that will enrich its long-term shareholders.

News Corp. spokeswoman Teri Everett declined to comment.

Although News Corp. Chairman Rupert Murdoch made it clear in a conference call last week that his New York-based company had no interest in an outright acquisition of Yahoo, he didn't rule out the possibility of a deal involving MySpace.

Yahoo rejected Microsoft's offer Monday, insisting that its Internet franchise is worth more money. Microsoft has held firm on its bid so far, dubbing it "full and fair" while threatening to launch a hostile takeover attempt.

Besides talking with News Corp., Yahoo has explored an advertising partnership with its biggest rival, Internet search leader Google Inc.

Although Google probably could help elevate Yahoo's recently drooping profits, the alliance would likely face antitrust hurdles because the two companies operate the Web's two biggest ad networks and eliminating one would reduce competition.

If Yahoo is able to work out a deal with News Corp., analysts believe Microsoft will simply raise its offer because it needs the acquisition to counteract Google's dominance of the online ad market — a battleground that is rapidly reshaping the technology and media industries.

"Buying Yahoo makes tremendous sense for Microsoft, more sense than any other company in the world," said Ken Marlin, a New York investment banker specializing in media and technology deals.
Yes, finally now Yahoo can now have Fox News type journalism too. I'd much rather have right wing opinion then real news anyway.

The fact that any media outlet rides any partys nuts is the biggest problem.

I'm the same guy. Just not a huge fan of Bill O Reilly..Sean Hannity...And that fucktard Gibson who made of fun John Stewart for getting emotional after 9/11. As far as wrestling goes..I don't think I've all of a sudden lost 50 wrestling IQ points or anything..I just don't like John Cena. You remember that huge post I made defending Cena a year ago..I still have the positive rep you gave me for it...But you also know I've been an John Cena is God!!!!John Cena is God!!!!John Cena is God!!!!John Cena is God!!!!John Cena is God!!!! mark for the longest time too..(Remember the whole John Cena is God!!!!John Cena is God!!!!John Cena is God!!!!John Cena is God!!!!John Cena is God!!!!/Hogan bet I made for Summerslam..Lol.) So the John Cena is God!!!!John Cena is God!!!!John Cena is God!!!!John Cena is God!!!!John Cena is God!!!! mark overrides the objectiveness...At least right now. But I still respect you and Truth, and DC, and everyone else in it just as much as I did before.

See..There's an example..I try to make a serious one on one post..And instead it all gets cut out with John Cena is God..God damn dude.

So the kid doesn't have the same political povs as you, Elmer and a few others so what. He's the same person as a few years back he's now just starting to wake up and see things for what they are. It doesn't take Ron Paul, Alex Jones or a couple or youtube videos to see the mainstream media is all bullshit. I am proud of the One, no pun indended but other than me he is the only One that choses not to bow down to the truly brainwashed PWF elite and they know who they are, too bad more posters who feel the way we do politically don't stand up for what they believe in but unfortunately they don't out of fear of not obtaining and/or losing mod spots or getting banned all together.

It's not just that. It's like, you're way too cynical and pissed off about stuff. Even football. You always keep trying to say things first just so you can say "I told you so." You're just different. I thought you were going off to college and shit. I thought you were excited. It's like you're all grown up and you want to show everyone how pissed off and badass you can be. It sucks man. You're losing it. The One has to find his smile again. Aren't you graduating soon? You got your whole life ahead of you. Don't be like this man. I can't take it. It's depressing me.

I'll admit that I have become more cynical over the past year or so. I don't really know what it is..I hope I don't try to come off like anything I'm not..I never really felt like I regained my spot here after you made me the SM ( which I lost) like you did. And to be really honest..Not getting in the HOF the first 3 years didn't help either. I know they're just online forum things and shouldn't matter..But thats just the way I took it. I also feel like maybe you've lost respect for me because of some of my political views..Like how I haven't been invited on KPWF in the past two shows..I don't know if thats a direct correlation or maybe I read into it too much.
