Microsoft sold its shares of MSNBC to NBC, officially pulling out of their joint venture. The MSNBC.com website forwards its users to NBCNews.com.
This just goes to prove that Liberal loon television does not work. Meanwhile, FOX News is the #1 watched news network.
From the USA Today:
The breakup announced late Sunday dissolves the final shreds of a 16-year marriage between Microsoft and NBC News, which is now owned by Comcast. The relationship began to unwind in 2005 when Microsoft sold its stake in MSNBC’s cable TV channel to NBC.
NBC is buying Microsoft’s 50% interest in the MSNBC website for an undisclosed amount. MSNBC.com will be rebranded as NBCNews.com, and readers who logged into MSNBC.com late Sunday were automatically redirected to NBCNews.com.
The website will move its headquarters from Microsoft’s corporate campus in Redmond, Wash., to NBC News’ home in New York.
The online divorce stemmed from the two partners’ desire to gain greater control over their digital destinies as the Internet becomes an increasingly important part of their businesses.
