News Corp CEO Rupert Murdoch said his company’s $580 million purchase in 2005 was a mistake.

Murdoch said MySpace was chronically mismanaged “in every possible way,” according to a report by the Associated Free Press.

“We could have sold it for $6 billion a month later,” Murdoch said, according to the AFP report.
