20 years from now, I suspect that the Romney Boys will change their name to Normey or something other than Romney.  The list of issues behind their dad's impending landslide defeat will be too embarassing to endure.

Or maybe, just maybe, the list of slimy tactics we have endured from the GOP Romney campaign will be a boon to this country.  Maybe, dare we dream, the GOP will become banished evermore.

Wall Street Journal accused of concealing writers’ Mitt Romney links

Veteran journalists attack Murdoch paper for failure to disclose writers’ political sympathies

The Wall Street Journal has been criticised by senior US journalists for failing to disclose that 10 of its op-ed writers are Mitt Romney advisers.

According to an inquiry by Media Matters, 23 pieces in the WSJ’s op-ed pages attacked President Obama or praised Romney without the writers acknowledging their political connections to Romney.

Damn liberal journalists.  Of course, those of us who read know who these players are; however, many Mesmerized Murdoch devotees will think "Hey, even these smart guys agree with me"

According to a Media Matters review,

the Journal published a total of 23 pieces from the following Romney advisers without disclosing their campaign ties:

John Bolton;
Max Boot;
Lee A. Casey;
Paula Dobriansky;
Mary Ann Glendon;
Glenn Hubbard;
Michael Mukasey;
Paul E. Peterson;
David B. Rivkin Jr.; and
Martin West.

In several instances, the Journal failed to disclose an op-ed writer's connection despite its own news section reporting that the writer is advising Romney.

To read the details of each of the non-disclosed party affiliated op-ed writers, do read this article:

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
