Murdoch Wants to Trade MySpace for Chunk of Yahoo

Got to love the aggression of Rupert Murdoch. Buys MySpace and now wants to leverage it for a chunk of Yahoo!

Since he only paid $580 million for MySpace – the site that now gets more visitors than Yahoo – and Murdoch is looking to trade for a 25% share in Yahoo – I think his numbers are a little off.

The story of Murdoch’s desires came to light today in the NY Post (which he owns) and other publications.
