Reflecting on the downward spiral that its owner News Corp. (NWS) had been trying to slow over the last year and how hard it was to do a turnaround of any kind, the exec also could not shake the idea that it could still be revived.
“MySpace is kind of a hot mess,” said the exec, referring to its still-large audience and well-known brand. “It’s both impossible to save and hard to give up on.”
