WSJ online edition outearns print

— 10:06 AM on April 15, 2005

Here's a bit of a shocker. The online version of the Wall Street Journal is outearning the traditional print version:

"They're simply losing market share to other media. Print publishing is not a profitable business for Dow Jones anymore," said Feinseth.

Kann is hoping that the company's long-range growth also comes in online publishing, which has profit margins at least 20-fold higher than print.

The Wall Street Journal Online is signing up thousands of new subscribers, up 5.2 percent for the quarter, to a total of 731,000.

Hmmm. So is the WSJ the exception that proves the rule, or should we be making you guys pay through the nose around here?
