Although I do not read it, they say that Mr. Murdoch has really improved the paper.

They say that Mr. Murdoch is a genuine (print) newspaperman.

He could probably do wonders for American newspapers, most of which are (by common consent) very boring.

British newspapers, on the other hand, are incredibly vibrant. Actually fun to read.

Maybe that's why London has about a dozen daily newspapers.

Most American cities have one -- or none.

Today in WSJ History

As the Journal celebrates its 125th year, we look back on how the paper covered the biggest news events since the first paper – just four pages, priced at two cents – was published on July 8, 1889. (Subscribers in 1889 were offered an annual deal of just $5, though of course that didn't include a digital edition.) Watch this space for how the paper covered wars, crashes, sinkings (we didn't get the Titanic quite right), celebrations, inventions, triumphs and other notable events.
