The Wall Street Journal Wants Boston Herald Readers

Full disclosure: The hardworking staff is one of the 17 home subscribers to the Boston Herald. As such, we received a letter yesterday from the Wall Street Journal (which the Missus subscribes to, she being much smarter than we are) offering us a discounted subscription.

Reserved for the readers of the Boston Herald

3 MONTHS for the PRICE OF 1

EXCLUSIVE OFFER

By Invitation Only

You are among a select few residents [The Few. The Proud. The 17] entitled to receive your first three months of the Wall Street Journal — in both print and digital form — for only $29.99. That’s 3 full months for the price of 1.

Seriously? The Journal chasing the readers of our feisty local tabloid? That’s the unlikeliest union this side of AOL Time Warner.

And likely to meet the same end.
