    What did happen to the "transparent" administration that would be free of lobbyist influence?

    The Wall Street Journal - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.


    News Corp.

    On May 2, 2007, News Corp. made an unsolicited takeover bid for Dow Jones, offering US$60 a share for stock that had been selling for US$33 a share. The Bancroft family, which controlled more than 60% of the voting stock, at first rejected the offer, but later reconsidered its position.[21]

    Three months later, on August 1, 2007, News Corp. and Dow Jones entered into a definitive merger agreement.[22] The US$5 billion sale added The Wall Street Journal to Rupert Murdoch's news empire, which already included Fox News Channel, financial network unit and London's The Times, and locally within New York, the New York Post, along with Fox flagship station WNYW (Channel 5) and MyNetworkTV flagship WWOR (Channel 9).[23]

    On December 13, 2007, shareholders representing more than 60 percent of Dow Jones's voting stock approved the company's acquisition by News Corp.[24

    Yes ma'am and a well respected member of the Wall Street Journal Editorial Board.. Would that your sources be so well respected.
    Care to comment on the substance of the article? Or will you continue your cowardice?

    You do realize that the Wall Street Journal is better respected and has a larger circulation than, say the NY Times, don't you?

    Comment on the article or go away, spammer.
