Boy, is Mike Jones going to be stung in his inbox today. The MySpace CEO has admitted that Murdoch might offload the fading site:
Today, MySpace CEO Mike Jones has confirmed what we’ve suspected all along: The company is looking for someone to buy the failing property before it’s too late.You'll notice that "including", which implies there are other possibilities.
