Yahoo + News Corp = Evil Internet

Yahoo has announced it’s looking at letting Murdoch’s News Corp. take over it’s hallowed halls for $40 a share (Microsoft offered $31). What a travesty for internet users worldwide! News Corp. a.k.a the axis of evil.

They have idiots pushed in our faces like Bill O’Reilly (O’Reilly Factor show on Fox), who continue to push the Neocon dictates of Herr Merdoch to the masses. Making Yahoo part of this awful corporation (there goes my chances for working at News Corp. Shame.) would be a terrible move in the long run. Don’t people get that no matter how much Microsoft bashing goes on, the prospect of News Corp. taking over Yahoo is one hundred times worse.

As I’ve mentioned, I believe the Microsoft based acquisition could be a very good thing – maybe Yahoo is trying to force their hand in raising the offer…. if that’s the case, I fear it could backfire to the detriment of us all.

  1. I don’t know that I’d worry so much about this as the corporate cultures are like oil and water. You may have hit the nail on the head – the Yahooers want more money so they will play the game the way everyone else does in this position.

  2. Agree to some degree about the cultures; My reason for not entirely agreeing is that I work for a global organisation that has been taken over by another organisation with a different ethos and culture. The transition internally is very painful at times and is ultimately going to hit our customers and our bottom line.

    Unusually, said org. has gone to our leading clients telling them it could affect them – at this time they’re keeping a watching brief, but if I was the competition, now is the time to think about snatching the clients on the premise of quality, etc.
