News In Brief

The New York Times v. The Wall Street Journal

Christina Huh Sep 8, 2010

The fine folks at the Taiwanese animation company NextMedia Animation brought their special touch to the New York Times v. Wall Street Journal battle — Rupert Murdoch is a shark swimming to New York (presumably from Australia), NYT publisher Pinch Sulzberger apparently fires people by sending them through a trap door and Murdoch has a magic wand that can turn people into entertainment, food and gossip writers. There’s even a Jets v. Sharks dance-off between the two newspapers (Murdoch’s team is, of course, the sharks).
