WSJ Editor Reminds Staff to be ‘Fair’ to Trump


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.”
