A story like this would have astonished me last year, but so much has happened in the interim that now I find it merely interesting:
Gerard Baker, the editor in chief of The Wall Street Journal, vigorously defended his newspaper’s coverage of President Trump on Monday, rejecting suggestions that The Journal had not been aggressive enough.
Facing tough questioning at a town-hall-style meeting with the staff, Mr. Baker denied that The Journal had been too soft in its coverage, according to several people who participated in the meeting. He suggested that other papers had discarded objectivity, and that anyone who wanted to work at an organization with a more oppositional stance toward the administration could find a job elsewhere, these people said.
"It’s a little irritating when I read that we have been soft on Donald Trump," he said, according to three of the people.
Ironically, the story is in the New York Times, which is where some of those disaffected reporters might want to seek employment.
