An interesting story currently highlighted at Techmeme discusses Yahoo’s shakeup over the past year and the potential that Yahoo’s new CEO Jerry Yang might make the tough decision to fork over some of its search monetization business to Google. The well written article by Kara Swisher also discusses News Corp’s recent MySpace profit hype and how it might just be trying to look pretty for potential buyers.

The thought that Yahoo might go for MySpace was also mentioned but I have to say… that is unlikely. I can’t imagine making a big buy during a house cleaning would be a move taken by anyone as smart as Jerry Yang but I guess Swisher felt it worthy of stating.
