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).

Marketplace is on a mission.

We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.

Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
