Nerviosismo en Wall Street Journal

"Ever since Rupert Murdoch bought Dow Jones from the Bancroft family, staffers at The Wall Street Journal have lived in fear of seeing their unique culture dismantled -- not unreasonably, given Murdoch's public critiques of the paper's long stories and its baroque editing process.
But perhaps nothing since the
ouster of managing editor Marcus Brauchli almost a year ago has done so much to crystallize that fear as a memo sent last Thursday by Brauchli's successor, Robert Thomson. On the face of it, the memo was no different from any number of edicts issued by his predecessors: Thomson urged Journal reporters to contribute more breaking news to Dow Jones Newswires and previewed a new system that will facilitate their doing so."
