Were we quoted in the Wall Street Journal?

From yesterday’s post, “BREAKING: CNBC Reports Dow Jones Sale“:

This may well be remembered as a very dark day in American journalism.

And Here’s the WSJ’s report on their own sale:

Murdoch Wins His Bid for Dow Jones
Bancroft Family Agrees
To $5 Billion Offer
After Deal on Fees
A New Owner for Journal

In a letter to the board, she conceded the deal was a good one in financial terms, but said it failed to outweigh “the loss of an independent global news organization with unmatched credibility and integrity.” …

What say you? (To quote a Rightie blowhard who will probably shortly become a WSJ columnist).

Courage.

    Many in the MSM still have a hard attributing things to bloggers. Good you caught that and pointed it out.
