Washington Post: A Trust Murdoch Will Not Keep

This is a deft argument for why the shareholders of the Dow Jones corporation that owns the WSJ whould not let Rupert Murdoch get his hands on it. The most revealing point, which is hardly up for debate, is that a discerning person can tell when a media outlet is owned by Murdoch because of the style, which is tailored to the LCD of the public through the use of the sensational, and content, his TV and print outlets are widely acknowledged as political mouthpieces. He cannot and be trusted to run (and make no mistake, once he owns it he will mark it as his territory) the WSJ.
