Wall Street Journal editorial board slams ‘cancel culture’: ‘We are not the New York Times’

The virus pandemic that has killed over 40,000 people worldwide is also wreaking havoc on corporate profits, with Wall Street forecasting a double-digit decline in the second quarter and no return to growth the rest of the year.

The Wall Street Journal editorial board took a swipe at The New York Times in a note to readers Thursday night, saying it will not bend to the “progressive cancel culture” sweeping the country.

“It was probably inevitable that the wave of progressive cancel culture would arrive at the Journal, as it has at nearly every other cultural, business, academic and journalistic institution,” the editors wrote. “But we are not the New York Times. Most Journal reporters attempt to cover the news fairly and down the middle, and our opinion pages offer an alternative to the uniform progressive views that dominate nearly all of today’s media.”

The note comes after 280 Wall Street Journal staffers signed a letter criticizing the paper’s opinion section for a “lack of fact-checking and transparency,” as well as an “apparent disregard for evidence.”

HURRAH!

Finally, a corporation shows some guts to stand up for the truth.
