The Liberal WSJ

A few years back I read about some research published in the QJE, an elite academic economics journal published at Harvard, which claimed that the WSJ's news pages have a liberal bias (although this was pre-Rupert Murdock...)...

I've now subscribed to the WSJ for close to a year, and I'm still trying to find some evidence that the WSJ is not a print version of Fox News. Here is a case in point. The Headline for the story on the Dems "Millionaires Tax" is "The Small Business Surtax". And, if memory serves, although it is listed as an "opinion" piece here, it was NOT actually on the Op-Ed page in the print version.

A better headline would have been something like "Democrats try to strangle puppies and small-business owners."
