Another Player in The Wall Streeet Journal Battle?

Written By mista sense on Tuesday, May 1, 2007 | 1:35 PM

If the prospect that Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation might buy The Wall Street Journal isn't wild enough for you, how 'bout this?

One possible suitor is General Electric Co., which has a relationship to Dow Jones via its CNBC business channel. Wall Street Journal staffers frequently appear on the GE-owned channel to comment on their stories or breaking news. But if GE really feels it needs to have business reporters appear on CNBC, it could just as easily acquire Pearson, publisher of the Financial Times, or Reuters Group and put employees of those outlets on CNBC.

Thanks to Crain's New York Business for providing The Cable Gamer with the most fun she's had in days--the prospect of a genuine bidding war for the premiere business paper in the country.

This is the Convergence we've all been talking about, when your TV set and your computer are One.
