The Wall Street Journal Europe is a version of The Wall Street Journal with daily news and analysis of global business developments for a European audience.
It was founded in 1983, and is now printed in six European countries, and distributed in over 50 countries in the region. Average circulation for the first half of 2004 was 87,018. It also maintains a strategic relationship with Handelsblatt, a German business daily, with which the Journal Europe shares content.
The paper can include up to four sections:
Section One – global and european corporate news, political and economic reporting
The Journal newspaper primarily covers U.S. and international business and financial news and issues—the paper's name comes from WallStreet, the street in New York City which is the heart of the financial district.
Regarding the Guantanamo Bay prisoner abuse issue, in the Journal editorial pages, there is justification of the use of torture against wartime enemies, while the Economist has opposed this, in consideration of both PR and of individual human rights.
In 2001, the Journal was ahead of most of the journalistic pack in appreciating the importance of the accounting abuses at Enron, and two of its reporters in particular, Rebecca Smith and John R. Emshwiller, played a crucial role in bringing these abuses to light.
