Less Space at MySpace


Rupert Murdoch is clipping the wings of News Corp.'s (NWS) once high-flying social networking site. Four years after paying $580 million for MySpace, with grand designs to make it the online distribution outlet for its TV shows, movies, and other content, News Corp. is slashing 30% of the site's staff, roughly 425 positions.

At the same time, overall online advertising dropped 5% in the first quarter.
