WSJ Drops News Corp. Disclosure

At least for this Tuesday report:

News Corp. Loses Contract

New York Changes Mind on Education-Tracking Tool, Citing Hacking Scandal

New York State’s comptroller rejected a $27 million contract between the New York State Education Department and News Corp.‘s education subsidiary, Wireless Generation, citing concerns about the phone-hacking scandal at the media conglomerate’s U.K. newspaper unit.

In a letter dated Aug. 25, the office of state Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli informed the education department that “in light of the significant ongoing investigations and continuing revelations with respect to News Corporation, we are returning the contract with Wireless Generation unapproved.”

Despite its standard practice, the Journal failed to disclose in the piece that it’s owned by News Corp.

Start of a trend? Anomaly?

Time will tell, as the hurricane watchers say.
