…don’t bother coming in on Sunday. People working in the ever-expanding hallways of the Journal empire tell Fishbowl that until recently, journos there have been griping about being leaned on to crank out that vaunted new Weekend Edition, a.k.a. That Damn Extra Day A Week We Lose With The Kids, which pops on Sept. 17. Solution: WSJ acquired both CBS MarketWatch and, more recently, hip Brit financial column breakingviews.com – the latter of which is editored by Winston Churchill’s great-grandson Hugo Dixon and will appear in the new weekend paper.
Now WSJ journos are tweaked that the new tenants are stealing their thunder and that they should be cut in on the new action. Hey, guys, which is it? Are you in an overworked Gulag, or are you jealous of your new fellow inmates? Can’t have both.
