RUPERT MURDOCH

News Corp. (NWS) founder Rupert Murdoch moved closer to his long-standing goal of owning Dow Jones & Co. (DOW), publisher of The Wall Street Journal, by meeting with representatives of the Bancroft family, the company’s controlling shareholders. The family had initially rebuffed Murdoch’s $5 billion offer for the company in early May, but now has agreed to meet with him.
