Mashable in CNN's Sites?

English: Mashable.com logo as of late 2008Image via WikipediaWolf Blitzer, who loves holograms and other high tech toys at his disposal as he anchors CNN's political primary coverage, must be giddy at the Reuters-reported rumor that the Time Warner-owned cable network may dole out more than $200 million to acquire social media news aggregator Mashable.

Founded in Scotland by Pete Cashmore in July 2005, Mashable covers digital culture, technology and social media and purports to attract 50 million page views monthly. CNN, which the Reuters article notes acquired the iPad news application Zite last August, is eager to boost its social media presence.

Neither company would confirm the possible acquisition.
