Wall Street Journal Faces Criticism over Favorable Coverage of Trump

New York, February 18 (RHC)-- The Wall Street Journal is facing accusations of being too favorable in its coverage of U.S. President Donald Trump.  Earlier this week, The Wall Street Journal’s top editor, Gerard Baker, called a staff meeting to address internal dissent.

The paper is owned by conservative mogul Rupert Murdoch.  Under Baker’s direction, The Wall Street Journal ousted opinion editor Mark Lasswell, after blocking him from publishing editorials critical of President Trump.  The paper refused to run a story about white supremacist support for Donald Trump.

And Business Insider reports Baker even tried to avoid highlighting that the seven countries included in Trump’s travel ban were majority-Muslim, instead suggesting to editors the nations be called "terror hotspots."
