Murdoch’s Wall Street Journal pulled editorial detailing Trump’s mob ties: report

Published

Billionaire right-wing media mogul Rupert Murdoch’s Wall Street Journal delayed and then killed an editorial revealing Donald Trump’s mob ties, Esquire reported.

WSJ editor Paul Gigot, delayed an editorial by Ted Cruz supporter James Freeman until after Trump was the presumed nominee. Freeman’s article supposedly detailed ties between Trump and organized crime.

The piece was never published and Freeman became a Trump supporter, writing, “America managed to survive Mr. Clinton’s two terms, so it can stand the far less vulgar Mr. Trump.”

As Vanity Fair reported that Murdoch’s American newspaper has suffered a significant brain drain due to the editorial page embarrassing the paper’s journalists.

New York magazine scribe Jonathan Chait noted “Trump’s Mafia connections are the sort of scandal that would have killed an ordinary candidacy but barely even register on the outsize scale of Trump scandals.”

“On the subject of the president’s authoritarianism and contempt for governing norms, the Journal now runs interference with the same gusto as Fox News,” Chait observed. “Its complete submission to Trump is perfectly emblematic of the choice the party has made.”

‘They’re all laughing at you’: Trump mocked after both of his SCOTUS picks rule against him on taxes

Published

on

President Donald Trump faced a stinging defeat on Thursday after the United States Supreme Court ruled that he cannot block a subpoena for his financial records from New York County District Attorney Cy Vance.

What made the decision particularly notable was the fact that both of President Trump's picks for the Supreme Court -- Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh -- ruled against him in the case.

Given that Trump has made his nominations of SCOTUS justices a cornerstone of his 2020 reelection campaign, many Twitter users pounced on the news to mock the president's loss at the hands of his own Supreme Court picks.
