MSNBC.com Buys Newsvine

Posted October 9, 2007 - By Mike D'Alonzo

MSNBC.com has purchased the social news networking site Newsvine, which is an interesting event since Newsvine is a grassroots-style site, and MSNBC.com is a giant corporation. What does it mean? Will Newsvine still be able to maintain their indie cred, or will the sellout to a major website mean that the news is, by it's nature, censored?

As long as they are able to continue to provide user-created content, you would think that Newsvine would still remain kind of pure. However, if you start to notice a whole lot of positive spin on MSNBC on the site, you know it's been corrupted.
