Washington Post & Wall Street Journal Merge Editorial Boards

Washington, D.C. - In a move that is designed to save money while also showing their close ideological connection, the Washington Post and the Wall Street Journal have merged their editorial boards into a single organization that will be jointly led by editors Fred Hiatt and Paul Gigot.

Speaking to their assembled staffs, Fred Hiatt said, "Both the Washington Post and the Wall Street Journal editorial boards have endorsed, promoted and sold the Iraq war to the American public and that's not all. We have been with President Bush and Vice President Cheney every step of the way. We have also attacked and forcefully rejected any individual with a view that does not agree with us and the president. In other words, our two papers are fellow travelers united in the goal of aiding President Bush and the Republican Party as they march toward their vision of a post-democratic America."

Commenting about the close personal bonds between Hiatt and Gigot that made this merger possible, Washington Post gossip columnist Sally Quinn said, "When one speaks, the other finishes the sentence. It's just adorable, and now they are going to carry that same chemistry over to their editorial pages. It's a match made in neocon heaven."

Great article. And, let's not forget The Washington Sun. They are the ones who wrote an editorial urging Dick Cheney to run for president. Maybe they can have a guest columnist? You know, just to balance out the liberal slant of the editorials of WaPo and the WSJ?
