Marcus Brauchli Decides Rupe Street Journal Isn’t for Him

Rupert Murdoch‘s reign at The Wall Street Journal took a hit today when reports that managing editor Marcus Brauchli announced his resignation surfaced. According to sources within the paper, “Brauchli tried to find a middle path between the paper’s traditionalists and Murdoch’s new vision for the paper,” but was unable to, which isn’t a surprise in the least. The departure, which Time (they even have a Web site?) first reported (file under: media reporters, including us, asleep at the wheel), comes as Murdoch ramps up his war with The New York Times.

But hey, at least the WSJ has Thomas Frank and Gordon Crovitz, right?
