WSJ To Shrink



To prove that even the second-largest newspaper in the country isn’t above term paper tactics, the Wall Street Journal is shrinking its width by three inches, adding more color and photos, in an effort to save $18 million a year. The changes, which take effect Jan. 2, were to be “unveiled at a press conference in New York on Monday.”

This is major media news, don’t get me wrong, but a press conference?
