murdochdowner.jpgWhen news warrants, I’ve been trying to file brief updates on the bumpy road that the Murdoch-Dow Jones deal is traveling. Here’s the latest: One Bancroft family member who is a member of the Dow Jones board and staunchly opposes the Murdoch deal, Christopher Bancroft, is wearing a blue fishing cap with the words “Bite Me” embroidered on it. Another key family member who had been ambivalent about the sale and seen as a swing vote inside the clan is now definitely opposed, the Wall Street Journal reports. The family gathered at a Boston Hilton hotel on Monday to official hear Murdoch’s bid, hear a series of presentations and then to deliberate in private. Now Reuters is reporting that the clan doesn’t expect to decide the matter until early next week.
