    This might not be a bad idea. As a subscriber, I now like the WSJ’s broader news coverage and I definitely see it as a complement/competitor to the New York Times.

    On the other hand, as a consumer of business news, I also miss the extensive business coverage and I go online to find the news I need– but, would I have done that anyway, given the rise of subject-specific websites? Maybe I would have. Maybe Murdoch is astutely, consciously deciding to surrender ground he knows he can’t hold anyway.

    Just a thought. And of course, all this effort ignores News Corp.’s fundamental problem, which is what happens to the company after Murdoch dies or goes senile. I shudder to think of the King Lear references that are coming.
