Brauchli Chopped?

Or so I think Rupert Murdoch's New York Post might have headlined this Times story about change at one of his other properties. The Times' editors were, naturally, more restrained:
Wall St. Journal Editor Expected to Resign

Marcus W. Brauchli will step down as the top-ranking editor of The Wall Street Journal after less than a year in the job, four people briefed on the matter said on Monday, just four months after Rupert Murdoch took control of the paper.

Mr. Brauchli, 46, will announce his resignation soon, according to friends and current and former colleagues, all of whom requested anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter. They differed as to whether he was being forced out as managing editor of The Journal, one of the most coveted posts in journalism, or leaving out of frustration.
Perhaps Murdoch was inspired by this classic song:
(sorry, couldn't resist...)
