Fox Begins Sales Job on the Wall Street Journal

Reported by Melanie - October 9, 2007 -

I wondered how long it would take before Fox began to push the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) and sure enough...that time has come. The Journal's Peggy Noonan was a guest today (October 9, 2007) on Fox's "premiere business news" show, Your World w/Neil Cavuto. Noonan was on to discuss, per the chyron (which pretty much sums it up), "Will Hillary Clinton Push Same Policies as her Husband?" (Answer: Maybe.)

At the end of the segment Cavuto said, "Alright. Peggy Noonan. Always good seeing you. Ah, you can read in the Wall Street Journal some very good stuff. Makes you think."

Then at the end of the show, during his "editorial," also known as, "Common Sense," today's edition titled, Is Good News Boring News?, Cavuto referenced an "astute" point made by the Journal.

Of course, Cavuto didn't tell his audience that Fox's parent company is buying the WSJ, just like Fox didn't tell its audience about most of the News Corp. products it sold here. Just think -- the cross-promotional advertising possibilities are going to be almost endless with the debut of a second, 24/7 Murdoch channel next Tuesday.
