Boo! It’s Halloween eve on the mediabistro.com Morning Media Menu podcast, and hosts Jason Boog of GalleyCat and AgencySpy‘s Matt Van Hoven opened the show with some scary news about The Wall Street Journal‘s closure of its Boston bureau.

“This unit in particular was working on longer form investigative pieces, and there’s just not too many outlets for that anymore,” Jason said. “And to watch them lose some resources at a paper that is doing better than other papers is kind of scary. People are worried about the future of investigative journalism.”

Also discussed: WPP’s earnings and Walmart’s book pricing battle with Target and Amazon.
