Remember when we were told "Don't worry about Murdoch buying the WSJ?"

That there would be a "firewall" between the news and opinion sections?

Check this.

Seems the WSJ and NBC did a poll about attitudes in Wisconsin, in light of recent events. Eric Boehlert reports:

... here's the NBC News headline for an article about the same polling results:

NBC/WSJ poll: 62% against stripping public employees' bargaining rights

And in the WSJ?

... the first and only mention of the union polling results came in the 23rd paragraph of a 24-paragraph article.


[Added] Lemieux's take on the same polling results:

A Reminder

1)Nobody really cares about the deficit, and 2)the major New Deal/Great Society federal programs are extremely popular. If only the Democratic political leadership could immerse themselves in these enduring facts…
