Storied Paper Catches Newsweek-itis

No, I’m not predicting that the venerable Wall Street Journal disappears, Cheshire cat-like.

Just that the print edition — now down to a relative wisp — ceases print publication altogether.

Best guess, based on its accelerating vanishing act (reminiscent of Newsweek’s painful decline): no later than the end of this year.

P.S.: No speculation whether — or how many of — The Journal’s subscribers and advertisers ultimately stick with it online.

But, I’m not shedding any tears for Mr. Murdoch (as in “Rupert,” whose News Corporation bought The Journal’s parent company, Dow Jones, in 2007).
