Letter to the Wall Street Journal


To the Wall Street Journal -

I am disheartened to hear that you are seriously considering Rupert Murdoch's offer to buy the Wall Street Journal. I'm sure the money he's offering is tempting. But do not kid yourself that you are doing anything except selling out. You can put editorial guidelines in place, but he has a demonstrated history of distorting the facts to suit his own agenda, and if you sell your newspaper to him you are giving him the most legitimate platform to date to pursue his own political and business interests.

Many news organizations have abdicated their responsibility to the public in the last 20 years. Are you ready to join them? Is our connection and responsibility to each other worth more than a dollar amount? That is a question we must all look at when making important decisions, keeping in mind that each decision toward or away from integrity serves as an example or excuse to others as well.

Sincerely,
