So I'm sure by now you're aware that Rupert Murdoch's News Corp is merging with Dow Jones Inc giving him control of the Wall Street Journal. This is a huge win for Murdoch and News Corp. The Wall Street Journal has long has a reputation as a conservative news source but it is nearly universally respected for it's thorough and reliable news reporting. The former owners the Bancroft Family was very hands-off and let the management of the paper make the bulk of the decision. Murdoch who has a reputation for being very involved in his news agencies.
The WSJ, despite it's good reputation, has been losing money for years. Will Murdoch try to influence the paper to make it more profitable? If he does will it simply backfire and destroy the WSJ?
