News Corp. Tries to return Myspace

Three plus years after purchasing Myspace.com for $580 million, Rupert Murdoch tried today to return the social networking site. When asked for the reason of the return, Murdoch claimed, "It seemed like a good idea at the time. I'm looking for something in a Facebook."

Luckily for the Australian tycoon, he kept the receipt from the sale in an old shoe box.

Murdoch ultimately kept the once gigantic site, turning down an offer for store credit.
