"Wall Street Journal" Is Free
At least for today. The Wall Street Journal is giving away tons of newspapers and making its (awkward) website open to one and all today to promote its new redesign. I've always been puzzled why the WSJ doesn't do a better job of covering the entertainment industry and that doesn't seem to be changing, despite the revamp and weekend editions that emphasize leisure. Their only coverage of the movie box office is to reprint an AP story. And the only original item of interest is this dry piece on podcasting that says record labels are finally relenting and realizing that podcasts can reach a bunch of people and promote their music.
