So who, aside from Rupert Murdoch and some Dow Jones stockholders, is going to benefit most from a Rupe Street Journal? How about Howard Rubenstein, Murdoch’s PR powerbroker, and his clients? The New Yorker‘s Ken Auletta, via Beet.TV:

Howard Rubenstein has ties to many public officials and clients that are important to a New York newspaper. Rupert Murdoch is his friend, and client, and the New York Post is also a client. Aside from Rubenstein’s considerable skills, every Post reporter knows that he is not just another flack. And should Murdoch acquire the Wall Street Journal, Rubenstein will have more friends.
