Editing the Wall Street Journal

Editor-in-chief Gerard Baker excised several conclusions from the WSJ’s coverage of the president’s Phoenix rally. Admonishing reporters:

“Could we please just stick to reporting what he said rather than packaging it in exegesis and selective criticism?”

That’s what was leaked to the NYSlimes, anyhow, as the WSJ reporting staff fought back against removal of their editorializing. Concluded the Slimes:

“The Wall Street Journal is owned by the media magnate Rupert Murdoch, who speaks regularly with Mr. Trump and recently dined with the president at the White House.”

Oh, horrors. Well, I guess we know what Gerard’s work is worth, eh?
