On Rupert Murdoch’s expected purchase and likely dismantling of the Wall Street Journal, Umair Haque saidbest:
Rupert is gonna absolutely eviscerate the Journal, and spit out something like a cross between the Sun and the business section of your local free paper. Yes, it’s speculation – but it’s also what he’s done to every newspaper he’s ever owned.
Absolutely right. He’ll try to transfer the WSJ’s respect and relevance to FOX News, all the while tearing it apart from the inside out until it’s nothing more than a hollow shell. And we’ll lose yet another reasoned and rational (even it is representing the right-wing) voice in the great American debate.
