WSJ looking to break more news on web site
Like most print newspapers struggling with how to deal with the changes in how readers get their news, the Wall Street Journal is examining how to break more stories on its web site, according to an item in Women’s Wear Daily by Stephanie Smith.
Smith wrote, “Its next project is beefing up its Web site to be a source of breaking financial news to compete with cnnmoney.com and YahooFinance.
