Why Can’t Paul Gigot Be The Editor of The Whole Journal?

An unfair piece in today’s Wall Street Journal (“Schools’ Efforts to Protect Gays Encounter Opposition”–in print edition and online only available to subscibers) about efforts to fight the bullying of homosexual kids in schools. Conservative, Christian, family groups are part of the bullying problem, most readers would understandably conclude after reading the “news” story. Meanwhile, groups above political labels defend kids from bullies. Human Rights Watch, for instance, comes off as some agenda-less groups only caring for the welfare of kids. The article uses the word “conservative” four times, labeling the Family Research Council and the West Virginia Family Foundation, among others. But never does the word “liberal” appear alongside the names of groups like the Anti-Defamation League, Human Rights Watch, and the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network.
