Instead of giving successes and failures equal play, The Wall Street Journal (which used to represent the best of conservative, quality journalism, but was bought by Darth Murdoch and Co, and has instituted a conservative filter according to its own writers) comes to Boulder and summarily finds what it expected to find: that going green is hard, that business owners (like our new Councilperson, George K. “don’t care” about closing business doors in winter), that even lazy liberals fear “Big Brother.”
Lesson? Wall Street Journal needs to go back to journalism ethics 101 and remember that it can’t “report” what it “believes” but instead what it “finds.”
