"I'm not sure I've ever read an editorial quite so self serving and plainly written in a blind rage." →
On Monday, the Wall Street Journal editorial page took a break from denying climate change to vigorously defend parent company New Corp., which is embroiled in a brutal hacking scandal. Kevin Drum was not impressed.
“In nearly four years at the Journal, Mr. Hinton managed the paper’s return to profitability amid a terrible business climate. He did so not solely by cost-cutting but by investing in journalists when other publications were laying off hundreds.” - The aforementioned editorial.
What!? You mean that investing in the business helped to revive it? I thought it was illegal to invest new money when things were looking down. It’s funny how conservatives are okay with this when it saves their jobs, but not the jobs of millions of other Americans.
