celgins, you right.
The business press once told you what you needed to know about, it told you what was a big deal. Business publishers didn't deal with a mass audience, they focused on decision makers and investors--and people who liked to know about stuff worth knowing.
Then, in the go-go 90s, everyone wanted to do business. Newspapers expanded their coverage, etc. And it got to be a mass audience.
The Wall Street Journal is now competing against The New York Times. It was not always that way. I have stopped reading WSJ. It's a waste of time.
