News Corp. synergy appears to be increasing between The Wall Street Journal and New York Post, as a story on beleaguered Citigroup ran in both newspapers on Nov. 29.
Journal staffers told Politico that there's uneasiness in newsroom over the decision. If this becomes common practice, Journal stories could be published in the tabloid with Post headlines and graphics, or vice versa. Not to mention, story subjects agreeing to an interview with one paper might not be aware it will run in another that day.
And with Journal staffers moving to News Corp.'s midtown headquarters next year, some said they expect even more synergy between the two.
Co-written by Money & Investing editor Ken Brown and reporter David Enrich, the story on Citigroup featured an exclusive interview with senior counselor and director Robert Rubin.
