The Wall Street Journal belongs to the world


An alert reader caught an interesting slip in an item we posted yesterday, regarding the plunge in prestige of the New York Times. Editor & Publisher quotes Reuters:

The Financial Times topped a list of the world's best newspapers based on a survey, conducted by a Swiss—based consultant, of 1,000 executives, politicians, university lecturers, journalists, and advertising professionals in 50 countries. The New York Times slipped from first in 2003 to sixth in the survey, according to Reuters. It was the only U.S. paper to make the Top 10.

Our reader comments: Did I miss something?  Is the WSJ no longer a U.S. paper?
