Financial News?

I cancelled my subscription to the Wall Street Journal last month after 40 years.  Just couldn't seem to find any financial news in what used to be a very well written and informative newspaper.  These days you can read all sorts of stories on the lifestyles of the rich and famous, who's divorcing whom and how much it's costing, the most exclusive clubs in New York City, as well as editorials on why we should all be happy that Goldman Sachs made it through the financial crisis, which they sorta helped create, with only a little help from the Fed.  After all, what's a loan of a few hundred billion between friends?  Especially with the fine collateral they had to offer.      

I miss the Wall Street Journal.  Sadly it's been gone for four years...thanks for all you do, Mr. Murdock.

  4. What? Is my evil laugh not comment enough?

    I believe you and I have opposite views on the Wall Street Journal. I used to think it was terribly boring because all it talked about was accounting and financial stuff, but now I can pick it up and the local coffee shop and learn all about picking the perfect beer for a meal or appropriate wedding attire. Oh boy! I think they just got too depressed talking about the economy, so they had to switch it up a bit.
