THE AUGUST WALL STREET JOURNAL has gone through a redesign in the last few days. I’d like to say things are better but they’re not.
It would be too harsh to say the WSJ has undergone a dumbing down, but we understand from sources close to the Journal that there’s been a sea change and now it has to compete against the New York Times. But the New York Times is free, and the Journal seeks subscriptions.
Unless the Journal gets miraculously better, we will be cancelling our subscription to it forthwith. Call me old fashioned, but I expect breaking news, not re-writes and shill generated copy. ♦
