Rupert Murdoch Chases Carey Back to Oversee News Corp's Digital Group

Chase Carey, DirecTV's CEO since 2003, is back with the Fox -- News Corp., that is.  Rupert Murdoch has lured him back to fill the void of departing President & COO Peter Chernin, who steps down as of July 1.  Carey previously was passed over by Murdoch for the "right hand man" position when Chernin was chosen as the anointed one several years back.

Among other things, Carey will oversee News Corp's digital business group, which includes MySpace and which is headed by former AOL topper Jon Miller.

Rupert Murdoch ... sly, like a Fox ...
