murdochbang.jpgHow will Rupert Murdoch, head of the world’s largest media empire and soon-to-be-owner of Dow Jones improve The Wall Street Journal?

  • Make it better in what it does now. Financial news.

  • Add more national and international news.
  • Kill the New York Times? “Yes, that would be nice.”
  • Expand the culture section.

How will he improve MySpace?

  • Renew co-founder Chris DeWolfe’s contract for another two years.

  • Roll out a “MySpace Platform” that will allow third-party developers to create applications for the social networking service.
  • Kill Facebook?

Imagine that would be “nice” too.
