So it finally happened. Rupert Murdoch is changing the journal.

So the journal now will focus on things like this:

and compete with reuters and blg.

WTF am I supposed to read on the train now?

Doesn't mean their printed articles will be any less robust. And the heard on the street blurbs have always been short blog entries...

Get a phone with access to the internet and read FT.com or bloomberg.

Also, for mobile news the NYT iPhone app is very solid and easy to navigate

The FT is way better than the WSJ as far as markets (this was discussed on a different thread). But the journal has some in-depth articles that are awesome -- they seem to have better access to what happens behind close doors than other media (FT included).

The point is that those long and thorough articles are being DISCOURAGED, and instead they're promoting this bloomberg style format. Plus, top people inside the journal are pissed, and they're leaving. That sucks.

I'm not disputing it, but considering the state of the newspaper industry is about ten times worse than the state of the banking industry (if that's possible), where exactly can the WSJ guys go?
