"The Journal stands out as a distinctive brand and a tremendous product, and we will keep investing in it, keep innovating."
-- James Murdoch, heir apparent to his father, Rupert, as CEO of News Corp., owner of The Wall Street Journal. Murdoch spoke to writer Ken Auletta for an April 11 New Yorker story about Robert Thomson, the WSJ's lead editor. (The story is behind a paywall.) Under Thomson, the Journal continues to make inroads on USA Today and The New York Times. Surprisingly, Auletta's story includes more praise of the Murdochs than you might expect.
