Unfortunately once trusted publications like Forbes and the Wall Street Journal have become political tools of their owners.

Malcolm Forbes certainly had a politcal view but the magazine was a success because he kept it factual. Steve Forbes, who no one would have heard of were it not for his inherited wealth, has no hesitation about compromising the integrity of the magazine.

Same with the Journal. The former owners kept a Chinese wall between the news and the editorial page. Since Murdock bought the Journal he's been chipping away at that wall at an increasing pace. After more than 40 years as a Journal subscriber I finally gave up on it. Not trustworthy and not worth the exorbitant price they now demand.
