Murdoch buys Dow Jones

This week’s news item, adapted for MEC from a news article originally published in the Guardian Weekly, is about Rupert Murdoch‘s takeover of the company Dow Jones and the possible impact this will have on its publications, such as The Wall Street Journal. Find out more about the takeover by going to the Headline News section on your Work Area screen.

As part of your lesson, you could direct students to The Wall Street Journal so they can get a clearer understanding of the material it publishes.
