Humorous Journal Page Reveals NYT Disdain for Murdoch

So much for objective journalists.

From the moment word got out that Rupert Murdoch had offered billions to buyout The Wall Street Journal, the media have cried foul.

Journalists and media critics charged that a Murdoch takeover would turn the prestigious business newspaper into a journalistic joke, that the media mogul would page six-ify the Journal.

An art director at The New York Times, carried those complaints a step further by creating a mock-up of what the Journal would look like under Murdoch. According to The Washington Post, the image has been circulating Journal and Times newsrooms for about a month.

The tabloid style page (See below) reveals the anti-Murdoch bias that exists even in the Times art department.
