After a news item took me to the Wall Street Journal site, I left the site up as it cycled through recent videos (while I was working on something else). I have not spent a lot of time listening to videos from Wall Street Journal, so had no overall opinion of the site.

In comparison to MSNBC, the voices were at a normal level, and the sound effects hinted at “we are tasteful and sophisticated”.

Recurring memes I could identify …

  • Republicans are good, Democrats are bad.
  • Government is always less efficient than business.
  • Government - not business - is somehow responsible to the current economic face-plant.
  • Not sure how to describe … the Wall Street variant of the New England mentality?

Not sure that the videos are representative of the written/print edition of the WSJ.

Has the WSJ changed since it was sold?
