First things first: cut the heart out.

What did you think then would be Rupert Murdoch's first move upon acquiring Dow Jones, the parent company of the Wall Street Journal? Reassure the staff that he has no intentions of interfering in the everyday running of both the editorial and news sections of the paper, as he has previously done when he purchased the Times and Sunday Times? Promise that their jobs are safe? Demand that the third page instantly institutes a topless lovely and that Wendi Deng gets a seat on the board of directors?

Rupert Murdoch is looking to make $100m (£50m) in savings at the Wall Street Journal's parent company, Dow Jones.

Expect a lot of journalists not too fond of Mr Murdoch to take either early retirement or hefty redundancy payments.
