The Wall Street Journal is an international daily newspaper published by Dow Jones & Co. in New York City; it concentrates on financial and business news. Named after Wall Street, the financial center of New York City and of the United States, The Wall Street Journal was first issued on July 8, 1889; its publishers were Charles Dow, Edward Jones and Charles Bergstresser.

On July 31, 2007, Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation, the parent company of Fox News and HarperCollins, sealed a $5 billion agreement to purchase the publisher of The WSJ, Dow Jones & Co.

It is one of the few newspapers gaining circulation in the U.S. With 2 million readers its circulation is catching up with USA Today.

Although The Wall Street Journal is considered a conservative-leaning publication, its brand of conservatism supported globalism, free trade, and open borders. After the election of Donald Trump as U.S. President, some infighting occurred among the Journal's editorial board, with the more pro-Trump camp appearing to hold the upper ground.[1]
