Wall Street Journal -> News Corp -> Murdoch
Hence hard pass. Hope they paid you up front Mate

The Wall Street Journal is one of the most respected and admired journalist organizations in the world. The Murdochs did buy it, but have not touched its reporting side; only its opinion page reflects the owners’ right wing politics, but that’s always been the case.

(Though funnily when I wrote an opinion piece for the WSJ, the editor wanted to stick in an anti-Trump poke.)
