Murdoch's Net Buying Spree Rumors Continue

from the news-corp-bought-my-blog dept

The last rumor about News Corp. wanting to buy Blinkx hasn’t even closed yet, but the next one’s started up. Apparently Rupert Murdoch and Co. want to keep their newfound Internet love-fest rolling by buying IGN and its stable of Web sites. IGN has been labeled a good fit for News Corp. in several stories about the rumors, a statement that appears to be based solely on the number of 18-34-year-old men it attracts. Of course, with such a big company saying it’s on the acquisition path, it’s going to be tied to all sorts of rumors, no matter how ridiculous.
