About The WSJ
Journal primarily covers topics in the American economy and world news, and news about financial problems. Its name derives from Wall Street, located in the city of New York, which is the heart of the Financial District of Manhattan; It has been printed continuously from the beginning July 8, 1889, by Charles Dow, Edward Jones, and Charles Bergstresser. The newspaper version has won the Pulitzer Prize thirty-four times, three including the Pulitzer Prize in 2007 for his reporting on backdated stock options and the negative effects of the rise of the Chinese economy.
The first product of Dow Jones & Company, publisher of the Journal, were brief news bulletins that were given hand throughout the day traders of the stock market. They were then aggregated summaries printed newspapers called Customers’ Afternoon Letter. Reporters Charles Dow, Edward Jones and Charles Bergstresser made this in The Wall Street Journal, which was published for the first time on July 8, 1889, and began delivering the news service Dow Jones via telegraph. In 1896, the “Dow Jones Industrial average” was officially launched. It was the first of many price indices of stocks and bonds on the New York Stock Exchange. In 1899, the “Review & Outlook” of the column Journal , which runs until today, first it appeared and was initially written by Charles Dow.
After presenting an almost identical homepage for half a century-long six columns, with the main news of the day in the first and sixth column, “What’s News” in the second and third, the main article “A-hed” in the fourth and weekly reports in the fifth column, in 2007 the paper reduced the width of its broadsheet of 15-12 centimeters keeping the length of 22 3/4 centimeters, to save printing costs. The innovative design consultant Mario Garcia collaborated on the changes. Dow Jones said it would save US $18 million a year in printing costs in every newspaper. This decision eliminated a print column, removing “A-hed” from its traditional location (although the paper now usually includes a unique history on the right side of the home page, sandwiched between the main stories).
