Murdock has such a stellar record of reporting the truth without spin. I can only imagine the consequences that would result from his involvement in Dow Jones and WSJ.

Would we get the same Spin Cycle that we now receive from his Fox enterprise or would WSJ enhance its circulation with the Page 3 Girl? Maria Bartiromo, your public awaits.

Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.

The family said they would consider it and then some family members said No. It is called negotiating, Rupert may raise his price to accomodate the ones holding out for a higher price. WIth more and more people getting their news from the internet (I once subscribed to the International Herald Tribune here for years but now read the online version) and the fall worldwide in newspaper sales they should hold out for more but in the end, let it go
