Vanity Fair Odds-Makers: Keller Over Thomson

Vanity Fair’s New Establishment list is out today. Here we have both of New York’s broadsheet editors and no ties.

The New York Times’ Bill Keller edged out the Wall Street Journal‘s Robert Thomson at #26, but Mr. Thomson finished right behind him at #27. VF notes that Mr. Thomson never misses a chance to “skewer” The Times, which is definitely one of our favorite things about him. 

Arthur Sulzberger Jr. didn’t make the cut, but there is Rupert Murdoch. Even though Mr. Murdoch’s salary is down, he’s up three spots on the list to #4.

4. Rupert Murdoch, News Corp. (7)
