But Dow Jones, the Rupert Murdoch-owned Wall Street Journal publisher that last week revealed that it had also enlisted McKinsey’s help, insists that this move will help grow the business, not shrink it.
To be fair, the Journal has recently launched new products like its new paid online product aimed at professionals, although cuts have been made — like the closure of the Boston bureau — despite the paper’s recent claim to the title of number one newspaper in circulation. But even the highest circ paper can be run more efficiently and, like with Condé, we’ll be keeping our ear to the ground for big developments coming out of Dow Jones in the next few months. We hope those developments won’t include more layoffs.
