Corporate 101: Murdoch Wins the Wall Street Journal

Rupert Murdoch now owns Dow Jones, and the Wall Street Journal. The takeover was a game of poker. The bet was high. Nobody else matched it, or came close. The owners of Dow Jones folded.

Update: Murdoch “highly unlikely” to proceed with Dow Jones bid, says News Corp

The owners of Dow Jones, the Bancroft family, are still divided on the bid, and Murdoch has already said he'd walk if the required level of approval from the Bancrofts wasn't reached. That looks very unlikely.

Bancrofts undecided on Dow Jones deal, time running out, Murdoch walking out?

Update: Dow Jones board recommends acceptance of News Corp takeover

It’s official. The Dow Jones board voted for acceptance of the offer, and four of the board are Bancroft family members. However, two of them didn’t take part in the vote. The family may yet block the takeover, despite the board’s acceptance.
