STRANGE (MEDIA) BEDFELLOWS
Just a couple of months after splitting up with the New York Times over its partnership in the International Herald Tribune, the Washington Post has found a new overseas partner with which to tango. Dow Jones & Company, publisher of the Wall Street Journal, will be carrying Post stories in the Euro and Asian (Eurasian, even :) editions of the Journal.

This little comment wins the understatement of the month award:

"The Wall Street Journal's editorial board believes free markets solve all problems, while the Post's has a more active view of the role of government," (independent newspaper analyst John) Morton said."

Indeed. The inclusion of contrasting (side-by-side?) op-ed pieces should make this an exciting, entertaining package. Wish I could see it every day; I'll be lucky to get it once a week.
