Conflicting info on the Rupert Murdoch thing — our prior report came from Bloomberg, the initial tweet came from CNBC, and this is from Reuters. Bloomberg hasn’t retracted its report, so we’re not assuming either report is the truth yet. So the big question is, who’s right? Twitter’s acting wonky tonight so our info is getting to us later than usual. Sorry for any delay.

More on Rupert Murdoch possibly stepping down: The CEO of News Corp. may leave his post based on his performance tomorrow in front of the British Parliament. Chase Carey, above (impressive ‘stache, eh?), would be his likely replacement. This would be a slight to Murdoch’s own son James, by the way. It would be a staggering fall for the self-made media mogul, to put it lightly. (EDIT: There are conflicting reports.)

We believed that the proposed acquisition of BSkyB by News Corporation would benefit both companies but it has become clear that it is too difficult to progress in this climate.
News Corp. chairman Chase Carey • Explaining why the company chose to drop out of the coveted BSkyB deal  which they had been gunning for for a while. However, this mess with News of the World happened, and here we are. Right now, the company’s problems center on the United Kingdom, but Sen. Jay Rockefeller is threatening to give them some increased stateside scrutiny. This could be bad. source (viafollow)
