Is Bias Creeping Into Murdoch's Wall Street Journal?
Murdoch is a consummate businessman. He's figured out the old 80/20 rule; 80% of imbeciles, being led by 20% of the smart people (in this case, conniving people!) Over 54 million people voted for the vanquished ticket last year, most of whom voted out of sheer bias towards the current POTUS, familial or party loyalty or their misguided belief in the "promise" offered by the Rethuglicans.
