Murdoch and The Wall Street Journal

I don't have photoshop. If I had photoshop, I would re-do the venerable Wall Street Journal as one of Rupert Murdoch's rather tawdry shock-sheets. Now, some people might not see this as change - after all, The Wall Street Journal is geared toward business readers, and it has been Conservative for years. But what it has not been is cheap, or sensationalized, or dishonest, or fearmongering. It has been respectable.

Not now. Now it will belong to Rupert Murdoch, who also owns Fox News OPINION.

But I hope that someone with photoshop will re-do the Wall Street Journal so it fits well with THESE:

I was disappointed to hear this too.

Murdoch and respectable have no business in the same sentence.

Thanks for the comment and for adding us to your blogroll. I'll do the same if my internet will cooperate long enough.

You're also welcome over at my other blog (rocrebelgranny).

Best,

Ann

So much for that place. Anything Rupert is poison!

Now if he controlled the internet news, that would make a huge difference. He does own Myspace - ickly blicky blue!

In a short while we won't need Photoshop to see the Wall Street Journal as a tawdry rag. Everything Murdoch touches turns tawdry. He's got that magic.

In passing, I heard "someone" complain about Murdoch and how the media is owned by a select few. Someone in the house or senate.

Where has this person been the last 30 yrs, with papers and tv outlets merging right and left?

Oh, another award, how do ya'll keep up????

Glad to hear you missed the heat in Chi town! ; )

One of the main ways Hitler ruled Germany was with the control of information.

Does this sound familiar?
