Fox Interactive Media, News Corp.'s Web division overseeing properties including MySpace, Photobucket and Rotten Tomatoes, saw its revenues drop in the second quarter to $210 million., from $233 million in the previous quarter. News Corp. president and COO told analysts today that the division would not meet its $1 billion revenue goal for its fiscal year, likely coming up $100 million short. He began the call: "Let me begining by saying yes, we will fall short of what were very aggressive projections." Insiders whisper that News Corp. CEO Rupert Murdoch set the numbers high to put pressure on MySpace CEO Chris DeWolfe. DeWolfe and MySpace friend-in-chief Tom Anderson signed a two-year, $30 million contract last fall to continue running the site.
