Editorial Cartoon: If Murdoch owned Dow Jones


Headline: Rupert Murdoch makes bid for Dow Jones

By J. Spencer, Philadelphia Business Journal

Two editions of the Wall Street Journal are shown.

On the left, under the label “Before,” is the current, staid newspaper, fanned out so one can read the titles of the inside sections: Marketplace, Money & Investing, Personal Journal and Weekend Journal.

On the right, under the label “After,” is a mockup of how J. Spencer imagines the newspaper might look if Rupert Murdoch’s bid succeeds: On Page One, a huge headline screams “CNBC, MSNBC linked to WMD”; inside, the sections now are called Page Three Girls, American Idol Results, The O’Reilly Factor and TV Guide.
