Wall Street Journal excoriates media for pro-Mueller, pro-Fusion GPS coverage in scathing editorial


Recommended Posts


The Wall Street Journal editorial board tore into the mainstream media in an editorial Tuesday.

What did the Journal say?

In short, the Journal’s editorial board excoriated the Washington press corps for their “groupthink” and outrage for anyone who questions special prosecutor Robert Mueller or Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm hired by Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the DNC that compiled the Trump-Russia dossier.


“One reason so few Americans trust the Washington press corps is its pattern of groupthink that denigrates anyone who breaks from the conventional wisdom,” the board wrote.

In recent days, the Journal has published several editorialscriticizing Mueller, Democrats and the media for their innocuous reporting on Mueller’s investigation and Fusion. The newspaper has admittedly had “criticism heaped upon” them for the editorials.

However, one news outlet was the target of the latest editorial.

Which outlet was it?

The Journal’s editors heavily criticized Politico for not disclosing the employer of a source they recently used in a story criticizing the Journal for its truth-telling on Fusion.

“One of the dirty little secrets in Washington is that Fusion is a longtime source for journalists, planting political hits that Fusion is paid by third parties to dig up. Now the press corps is defending its meal ticket, often without reporting honestly about Fusion and how it works,” the editors wrote.


Fusion fury.
