Rupert Murdoch Has Jumped The Shark
from the nice-work dept
It's hard to resist a title like that one. However, with Rupert Murdoch buying up any and every site he can find where the kids like to hang out, it appears that he's now, literally, purchased jumptheshark.com (for the three or four of you who don't get the reference, go here). Actually, it's TV Guide/Gemstar (partly owned by Murdoch) who decided to make the purchase, but with all the talk about how Rupert somehow has a deeper understanding of the internet than most of his peers, it's certainly worth asking if there will be a point at which Rupert has... well... jumped the shark.
