Back in the early wild west pioneering days of web Portals like Lycos, Alta Vista and Yahoo (in its peak) media providers like MSNBC and AOL stood tall as prominent and dominant resources. The mega marraige of Microsoft and NBC brought us MSNBC. For a quite a few years MSNBC rode very high as a primary source for news and information but now in the ever-changing new milleniun apps and social media have finally managed to kick MSNBC to the curb and the party is over and the new media exercise is about to wrap up.
NBC Universal has stated plans to regain Microsoft’s control of the MSNBC.com web site and bringing an end to the partnership between the two companies. The peacock once on life support seems to have died.
