The Schizo Journal

A few years ago when Microsoft was under investigation by the US Department of Justice antitrust, The Wall Street Journal would report on its news pages clear examples of exactly how Microsoft was abusing its power, while on the opinion pages commentators would fulminate and thunder at how Big Government was trying to undermine a Good Business that Just Wanted To Make A Buck. Sometimes this happened in the same edition of the paper.

The split personality has continued with regard to climate change, with the latest example being a reasonably straight report in the news pages about the so-called hockey stick controversy: Global Warming Skeptics Under Fire by Antonio Regalado.
