    Mr. Peers has his work cut out for him. It’s widely recognized among competitors and readers that the WSJ’s media coverage has gone from “must read” to “who cares?” since Murdoch bought the paper. The breaking-news stories are about fluff. The enterprise is virtually nonexistent. The reporters are too young and inexperienced to ask deeper questions or put things in context. Whether Peers can improve upon his harsh, awkward management style to bring out the best in his charges is the question everyone at the paper is asking.
