Quote of the Day: The WSJ Editorial Page Sinks Even Further


From Felix Salmon, on a Wall Street Journal editorial over the weekend that lashed out at Rupert Murdoch’s critics:

That editorial has achieved the remarkable feat of making the WSJ editorial page even less respected than it was before.

I’m not sure I’ve ever read an editorial quite so self serving and plainly written in a blind rage. It’s here if you want to read the whole thing. More from Andrew Sullivan here and David Carr here.
