Barber: Journal is trying to be like us

In an interview with Lionel Barber, FT’s editor in chief, he was asked whether he thinks the WSJ is trying to be more like the FT or NYT under the governance of Rupert Murdoch.  His answer was:

Well, I think that they are practicing the sincerest form of flattery—I think they are! They are clearly adopting the lessons that we’ve learned, and they’re adopting some of the tactics and some of the approach that we’ve taken. Their stories are shorter. They’re trying to catch up on global news coverage. And yeah, I think they are trying to be a bit more like us.

Nice.
