Bombshell? Doug Frantz off to Istanbul for WSJ

Re-inventing himself almost instantaneously, Doug Frantz, managing editor for the LA Times until 6 July, will soon be shepherding a half dozen hacks in the Middle East for the Wall Street Journal, starting in September; his summer vacation presumably will be spent with his wife, Catherine Collins, toiling over "the Nuclear Jihadist" a co-written tome about AQ Khan, the nuclear smuggler behind the Islamic bomb.
Whether Frantz will answer to Rupert Murdoch remains to be seen. It'd be a shame if he's required to put the bull into Istanbul.
