Rupert's in financial stress again:

The world’s most famous stock index, the Dow Jones Industrial Average, may get a new owner and possibly a name change after 113 years, if Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation follows through on selling its stock-index business.

The Wall Street Journal, owned by Dow Jones until its sale to News Corporation in 2007, has reported the company is exploring a sale of the unit.

Oh, I hope it becomes the "Vivid Video Industrial Average".
