In NYC rivalry, WSJ has 'uphill battle' against NYT

[News Corp.'s Rupert Murdoch, NYT Co.'s Arthur Sulzberger Jr.]

That's according to New York Magazine, which compares The Wall Street Journal's roster of reporters in its about-to-launch New York City Bureau to the established team at The New York Times. "Even accounting for slight differences in assignment (the Journal city room will cover only New York, whereas Times city reporters must also do national reporting on their beat), the staff numbers say Murdoch has an uphill battle,'' the magazine says today. It lists reporters known to be devoted to each team. "As you can see," the magazine says, "in nearly every beat, the Times already has two reporters in place for each one of the Journal's."
