The Wall Street Journal’s editor in chief Gerard Baker wants the paper’s coverage of Donald Trump to be “fair.”
According to Politico, during a recent morning staff meeting, Baker went on a “surreal tangent,” imploring his editors to cover Trump as a serious candidate. There’s definitely something hilarious about an editor reminding staffers that the paper’s coverage of a presidential candidate has to be mature.
As you might have guessed, Baker’s remarks did not go over well with staffers. Some of them considered the speech “an insult or admonition.”
