The Wall Street Journal subtitled its Tuesday editorial “In defense of the New York Times.” But, not surprisingly, it really wasn’t. The editorial took pleasure in noting that the Times, whose editorial board championed campaign-finance reform, is under fire about those laws. Some are calling for an investigation of the Times not charging MoveOn.org full price for its David Petraeus ad. The Times’ public editor, Clark Hoyt (a former editor at The Eagle), agrees that the rate was a mistake. The Journal’s defense amounted to saying that the problem isn’t with the Times’ ad rates but with the campaign-finance law.
