Rupert Snags God Online

Did everyone hear that News Corp., that behemoth headed by Rupert Murdoch, has purchased Beliefnet.com, a faith portal whose mission "is to help people like you find, and walk, a spiritual path that will bring comfort, hope, clarity, strength, and happiness". Well, I doubt they meant people specifically like "me"...

Anyway, the same guy that owns Fox News and the Wall Street Journal now owns an online site for jeebus believers. Not that I think this particular acquisition is all that significant, but does anyone else think that there should be limits on the number of "news" organizations that one company can own? (Like there used to be...)
