News Corp(se) Dodge o’ the Day®

It’s a tie!

Winner #1: Bret Stephens in Tuesday’s Wall Street Journal:

News of the World vs. WikiLeaks

Only one placed at risk ‘the lives of countless innocent individuals.’

How does this year’s phone hacking scandal at the now-defunct British tabloid News of the World—owned, I hardly need add, by News Corp., the Journal’s parent company—compare with last year’s contretemps over the release of classified information by Julian Assange’s WikiLeaks and his partners at the New York Times, the Guardian and other newspapers?

At bottom, they’re largely the same story.


Winner #2: Robert L. Pollock in Tuesday’s WSJ:

The Murdoch Empire: An Inside View

If you want an example of editorial independence at News Corp., look at how often ‘The Simpsons’ mock their broadcasters at Fox.

    If they repeat it often enough it will be taken seriously.
