    Is digg going to sell out? This article thinks so: http://www.techcrunch.com/2006/10/24/digg-...with-news-corp/?

    But these guys think otherwise:

    </a>?
    But who knows, we all know digg in 05 had a little story about yahoo buying them..and with Google getting YouTube News(Which owns the craptastic Faux News channel with Tad Baxter's Factor show) corp would only win by getting Digg's 85% Democratic userbase and making their cronies go and make the percent of Democrats (Myself included) lower with the spam bots and crapiganda from Bill O'really. And I know, and hope Kevin and Jay will not sell out, much like Paul Allen selling Techtv to Comcast. If Digg is bought by Google or Yahoo, that would be good, Apple or Microsoft would be too bad..but its like Apple already owns digg, and if Microsoft buys it more Zune and Vista ads and the addition of Mircrosoft news (Security) would be added. But I hope it is not Time Warner, Comcast, AT&T or New Corp buys it. Hell isn't Digg by the people for the people and the 25% of the top 30 users that run digg..not some Bush/GOP ass kissing corperation that owns it...let alone people that agree with the idiotic statement "The internet is a Series of tubes" running the fastest growing site on the web and the site that inspired GoTechGeeks to make the site like it (But not like it in the system).

    My rant is over. Have a nice day.And expect this to be like what I write on the site..with out the errors because this isn't edited, unlike the stories on the site..
