Sony E-Reader to Offer Journal Subscriptions - WSJ.com

Here’s an interesting case study in journalistic integrity (or lack thereof, perhaps) – the WSJ attempting to write objectively about its parent company’s difficult choices

Sony Corp. said it will offer subscriptions to The Wall Street Journal and the New York Post on a new version of its electronic reader, the latest in a series of moves by publishers and consumer-electronics makers to loosen Amazon.com Inc.'s hold on the fledgling e-reader market.

Sony said Thursday it will sell subscriptions to the digital edition of the Journal, as well as a daily news summary available only on the Sony device. It also said users will be able to subscribe to a daily summary of news and columns from MarketWatch.com, which like the Journal is owned by News Corp.
