The Sly Fox

Ross Levinsohn’s wheeling and dealing to get News Corp. back in the Web game has been ridiculed by many as profligate and late. But he may yet prove them all wrong. … this is my latest article for Business 2.0, which is now available online. A lot of people had some wonderful comments and insights on Robert Young’s post from yesterday, and perhaps this piece adds to the whole conversation. I hope you find the time to read it. (Of course you could read about Ross’ boss here!)
