In non-Obamacare news, the News Corp. board of directors approved a plan to split Rupert Murdoch’s media empire into two public companies: one for publishing and another for entertainment and television assets.
Murdoch will chair both companies.

So basically News Corp is splitting into "news" and "corp."

Something like that.
In the split of News Corp, it's telling that @wsj goes in the news and information company, and Fox News goes into entertainment.

Telling? Uh, yeah, it’s telling that Fox News, a television asset, will fall on the television side of the split.
Predictably, “Faux News” haters took the opportunity to bash News Corp for, uh, existing.
#newscorp can turn into santa claus they can still suck it I'll boycott their products every chance I get it.

Newscorp to split up. It can do more damage that way.

How do you divide one sort of bullshit from the other? #newscorp
