The LA Times reports that News Corp is in talks to buy the Blinkx search engine.

Rumblings started last week when Murdoch said he was looking for a search engine to buy.

Search Engine Journal speculated this morning that potential targets might be Looksmart, Mamma, Technorati or Gigablast. Blinkx was not on that list.

I will update this post in a bit, but want to get the initial announcement out now.
