Jumping at the Journal

A really interesting rhetoric-of-news story by Ryan Chittum in the Columbia Journalism Review on the Wall Street Journal under Rupert Murdoch. Chittum explains how the shrinking of the news stories, while seemingly making them newsier, is actually eliminating the analytical perspective on business and finance developed by the WSJ.

Ryan Chittum, "The WSJ and the Limits of a 'No Jumps' Policy: Dumbing Down and Devaluing the Wall Street Journal," Columbia Journalism Review, 25 March 2009.
