News Corp Might Keep Part of Myspace

Despite Myspace continuing its freefall, The Wall Street Journal is reporting that News Corporation is seeking a deal where they retain a part ownership of the website.

The company has hired Allan & Co. to advise them on possible deals, but so far, it’s not going well. So perhaps News Corp is willing to keep part of Myspace as an incentive to investors, who would otherwise be unwilling to take on such a money pit.
