Wall Street Journal: The Zoo

Let’s see if we can get this straight: In covering bulls and bears, the Wall Street Journal, the lamb, may be sold to Rupert Murdoch, the lion, if he promises to leave it alone in some lower Manhattan version of the Peaceable Kingdom.

Apparently, these fantasy negotiations are going on while the endangered species, the paper’s reporters, are bleating about Murdoch’s methods--while they still can.

To complete the menagerie, the current owners may want to keep in mind what they say about a leopard changing its spots.
