    I’ve been following the WSJ’s coverage of the News Corp.-Dow Jones & Co. negotiations. I think it has been pretty fair, considering the paper’s vested interest in the issue.

    But I knew where to turn to find the most in-depth coverage of the story. Keep up the good coverage.

    its not a great surprise at all that Mr. Marcus Brauchli has expressed his views in favor of NC.
    Actually, its not the job of editors to decide about ownership of their companies – but with the Job of editor becoming more powerful, they can certainly influence.
    I think this is the final straw in the deal for Mr. Murdoch’s favor.
