Full-time for Fox Soccer: Bad news for US-based fans of what is known around the world as “the beautiful game:” Fox has announced that Fox Soccer Channel, the only American network dedicated to soccer, is to cease broadcasting in September to be replaced by a youth-oriented channel. The new channel FXX, will complement the existing entertainment channel, FX. Fox will broadcast soccer matches, including games from the showpiece UEFA Champions League, on a new multi-sports channel, Fox Sports 1, that will likely launch in August.

Google’s Guidelines: In a post on the Google News blog, Senior Director of News and Social Products, Richard Gingras reaffirmed that the site was not in the business of posting links to articles that masquerade as news while trying to sell a product or monetize links.  “Google News is not a marketing service, and we consider articles that employ these types of promotional tactics to be in violation of our quality guidelines,” he wrote.  Gingras advised site owners to clearly separate their news pages from their promotional content.

CIA spook under wraps: The Washington Post reported Wednesday that the woman running the CIA’s clandestine operations approved a controversial 2005 decision to destroy videotapes of prisoners being subjected to treatment some have described as “torture.” In doing so, the Post acquiesced with the CIA’s request not to name the woman, because she is still undercover.  The woman is currently directing clandestine operations on a temporary basis; the revelations are problematic for CIA Director John Brennan, who is mulling a decision to give her the job permanently.
