Why the Merger Matters
Dean Starkman of CJR Daily has an obituary today-- a premature but good one -- on the demise of long form journalism at the Wall Street Journal under Rupert Murdoch.
He's right, but I think his essay would be more on target if they included all the Dow Jones publications, not just the Journal. It sometimes seems as if Barron's and MarketWatch.com are simply ignored by media writers. Long-form journalism has thrived there too, you know.
