Breaking News: Pigs Fly; Murdoch Buys Wall Street Journal

In what will become a classic case study for “money CAN buy you anything,” the sale of the Wall Street Journal to Rupert Murdoch seems to be going through.

“The board of Dow Jones & Co. voted to approve News Corp.’s $5 billion bid for the company last night, with two directors abstaining from the vote and one leaving the meeting early, according to people familiar with the matter.”

If nothing else, continued smooth sailing like this will provide all of us bloggers with something to write about for the next year. So thank you Rupert Murdoch.
