A breath of fresh air from a newspaper editor, speaking of a draft copy of story about Trump's Phoenix rally and speech:
"Sorry. This is commentary dressed up as news reporting," Mr. Baker wrote at 12:01 a.m. on Wednesday morning to a group of Journal reporters and editors, in response to a draft of the rally article that was intended for the newspaper's final edition.
He added in a follow-up, "Could we please just stick to reporting what he said rather than packaging it in exegesis and selective criticism?
Earlier, in February, he "suggested that other newspapers had abandoned their objectivity about the president" and "encouraged journalists unhappy with the Journal's coverage to seek employment elsewhere."
