Wall Street Journal Online launches Deal Journal Blog

The Wall Street Journal Online announced the launch of “Deal Journal“, an up-to-the-minute blog with take on deals and deal-makers. The Journal’s top M&A reporter Dennis Berman will lead the blog with former Bloomberg reporter Dana Cimilluca, with additional reporting from Journal reporters in New York, London and Hong Kong; editors from WSJ.com; and private equity reporters from Dow Jones Newswires.

“Deal news itself is quickly commoditized on the Web,” said Dennis Berman. “Where the Journal provides value is our insight, experience and intellect. Our collective observations on a given situation are what make all the difference – and we hope to deliver a bit of humor and entertainment, too.” The latest blog brings to 10 the free blogs that Wall Street Journal is offering.
