BGSL vs Murdoch in Wired


Wired has a killer cover story this month by Spencer Reiss profiling Rupert Murdoch, chock full of Ross Levinsohn, and going deep into Myspace.

And I don't just mention that because we're quoted (and even called "trendy"...awww).

It's a great piece rich with insight, highly recommended.

And, yes, it's a (huge) testament to the intellectual and analytical poverty of the state of new media investment that Murdoch is still the guy that gets it the most - and so merits cover stories in Wired (just contrast for a sec with yesterdays digerati). Murdoch qwns j00 VCs (competitors, everybody) - and that is kind of sad.

Not just quoted, but quoted in the story lead in. Pretty nice.

The rates you're giving me are guaranteed for five years, right? ;-)

�The greatest thing to come out of [invading Iraq] for the world economy ... would be $20 a barrel for oil.� Rupert Murdoch, chairman of News Corporation (which owns Fox News), February 2003" (quoted by Paul Krugman)

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! !!!!!!
