Rupert Murdoch's decision, catalyzed by a straight year of bad press, to separate the weaker and scandal-plagued publishing division from the rest of News Corporation is just beginning to reverberate through his empire. Change is already afoot near the top, with chief digital officer Jonathan Miller, the former CEO of AOL, planning to depart next month. Miller worked on projects like MySpace and The Daily, and has plans to start his own company, Businessweek reports. More shake-ups probably aren't far off.
