      the news actually seemed quite reasonable, but I haven't read it in years.

        or businessman, and he surely knows that the WSJ's raison d'etre is its highly regarded news section, and that if he messes with that, it's curtains. And he can ill-afford to do his operations more damage these days. He bought the WSJ for business, not propagandistic reasons. He has Fox & the Post for the latter. When he goes, though, his kids will likely destroy it, like Graham's kids did to the WaPo.
