Both The New Yorker
and The New York Times
have lengthy articles out today on Rupert Murdoch and his quest to own The Wall Street Journal
. The Times deployed four journalists to examine
just how Mr. Murdoch had used his various media outlets to further his business interests, and when that involved exerting political influence. Meanwhile The New Yorker's media writer, Ken Auletta, looks at what kind of journalism
The Journal might do under Mr. Murdoch's control.
