Okay. This doesn't have much to do with animation, but it's amusing all the same. And based on what our big entertainment conglomerates have done with the magic of the intertubes to date, it's pretty typical:
After a sales process that lasted several months and featured a last-minute swerve, Rupert Murdoch's News Corp. on Wednesday agreed to sell money-losing social networking site MySpace to online advertising network Specific Media for around $35 million ...
So Rupert and his minions took over a half billion dollar bath on their purchase and resale of MySpace. (You do a bunch of deals like that, and you're probably not going to be a big, fat conglomerate for very long).
But it's all good. Because Justin Timberlake is now a minority shareholder. Also amusing, since Justin played one of the profit participants of Facebook in the movie Social Network.
