The WWF (World Wrestling Federation) used to maintain a facade of reality--as if it were a legitimate, competitive sport. Then, it was forced to admit in court that it's really staged entertainment in order to get permission to play in certain venues that didn't allow sporting events.

This move by News Corp. reminds me of that admission. In drawing a line between news and entertainment for its proposed split, entities like The Wall Street Journal fall on the News side of the fence, while Fox News not surprisingly is deemed Entertainment.

Call it a Freudian slip, or just blatant honesty. Either way the categorization seems accurate.
