A Note to Readers - WSJ
From : "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 opinion pages will continue to publish contributors who speak their minds within the tradition of vigorous, reasoned discourse. And these columns will continue to promote the principles of free people and free markets." via
A hilarious exchange: journalists to publisher: The opinion operation is giving us a bad name because they don't check facts and they publish things that are disproven by our reporting. to readers: We won't yield to cancel culture!
It's good that won’t wilt under cancel-culture pressure. It's too bad they already wilted under Trump-culture pressure.
WSJ: “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. But we are not the New York Times.” v ⁦
A Note to Readers: These columns will continue to promote the principles of free people and free markets, which are more important than ever in what is a culture of growing progressive conformity and intolerance.
WSJ responds to its own staff correctly saying it’s opinion pages were rife with inaccuracies by inaccurately accusing them of imposing “cancel culture” on its newsroom. Lack of professionalism aside, it exactly proves the point of the original letter.

A piece that needs to be read by every journalist. You don’t have to agree with all their opinions to cheer what the Editorial Board says here >> A Note to Readers: These pages won’t wilt under cancel-culture pressure.
To call the letter, which I signed, an example of "cancel culture" is a gross mischaracterization. via

WSJ Editorial Board Responds: “These pages won’t wilt under cancel-culture pressure”.
This is incredibly dumb. WSJ reporters asked for more clear delineation from the op-ed page, and that reporters be free to comment when their own reporting contradicts op-ed page commentary. The op-ed page responded by screaming about “cancel culture.”
It seems like a NYT-esque effort to control the op-ed/editorial page occurred at the WSJ, and the WSJ's response is to basically shrug and ignore it
I'm proud to write for ~ We just need to remind *some* of the news side reporters that you can't invoke the Chinese wall between News & Editorial AND tell the editpage how to do its job! That's called "having your woke & eating it too" via
WSJ editorial board slams cancel culture, won’t back down from marketplace of ideas
"We are not the New York Times," the Wall Street Journal editorial page assures its readers.
Woke staff inside WSJ want past articles reexamined. Publisher: "We are not the [NYT]... our opinion pages offer an alternative to the uniform progressive views that dominate... today’s media... [in] a culture of growing... conformity and intolerance."
Management of all newspapers in the same boat should take a lesson from the WSJ: A Note to Readers: These pages won’t wilt under cancel-culture pressure. via
"...support has often been mixed with concern that perhaps the letter will cause us to change our principles and content. On that point, reassurance is in order." "...we are not the New York Times."
Hm... The Wall Street Journal opinion pages: “We are not the New York Times. ... These pages won’t wilt under cancel-culture pressure.”
