For a Good Time Call 1-800-JOURNAL
Do you want to get screwed? I know this sell-out whore who will screw anybody for five billion dollars. All you gotta do is call this number: 1-800-JOURNAL (1-800-568-7623). Just ask for Dow Jones, or Wall Street Journal, as that sell-out whore is known as on the street. But be careful because Dow Jones is crazy and could turn on you at any time.
Everyone says that Down Jones used to be pretty honest and respectable, but lately Dow Jones has been talking to this real nasty media-pimp named Rupert Murdoch. He lies and makes all the whores in his News Corp. stable lie too. I used to see Dow Jones about six days a week, but I can’t take the risk of being misinformed if Wall Street Journal starts working for Murdoch.
Murdoch is media-pimping so much that I’m afraid that he is going narrow the scope of available information. He might even use some of his whores to hide information about his other whores. He might even start firing editors that don't portray himself, his corporate-pimp friends, or his information-'ho's in a positive light. Check out the Columbia Journalism Reviewif you want to see how many whores are in the News Corp. stable already. If you want some more information about Murdoch’s bid for Dow Jones that is free from pimp and whore metaphors, you can check out this Washington Postarticle by Frank Ahrens.
