I'd seriously like to make a Wall Street Journal Daily LaughAlong App

This information on environmental stupidity in the Wall Street Journal editorial pages since 1976 should be expanded into a smartphone app.  Each day you could find out what obvious reality was denied on that day of the month in the WSJ in the past, as a balance to whatever new nonsense will be showing up.


LaughAlong at the Journal, though, not with the Journal.  Beats crying, anyway.

Dr. Lumpus Spookytooth, phd.

I noted the timeline for acid rain only extends until 1990...

that's because acid rain never materialized into the trumped up problem it was supposed to be.

Applying his dernierguage to the filaments of sockpuppetry the noted stadometer Dr. Cadelot Chocula D.Perp. has detected a 2 sigma roll off in Jay Cadbury postings attending the rise of the genus lumpus

Maybe because in Europe and the US folks did something about it?

Remember in Snoopytooth land solving problems mean they never existed

Thanks for the link to the article debunking WSJ. I knew that they have been anti-science in recent years, but this show that they have been consistently wrong for a very long time, well before the Murdoch era.

Distinguish the WSJ Editorial Board from the WSJ journalists. These are discrete non-overlapping sets:

Thanx Hank.

Allow Eli to call bullshit on that. The WSJ has been using that crap for years to cover up their obdurate stupidity. They work for the same boss. They do his bidding.

Anyone who allows a WSJ reporter to run that game on them deserves what they get.
