Full disclosure

- August 19th, 2012

Karl Rove, the architect behind George W.Bush’s two presidential campaigns, is now a columnist for the Wall Street Journal.

He is also a Republican fundraiser, although the journal does not describe him as such.

He is working to get Barack Obama kicked out of the White House. At the same time, he is a news columnist covering the race for the White House.

Should the paper disclose Rove’s role in the presidential vote?

Why/why not?

    The presumption here is that the people who read the Wall Street Journal are reasonably intellegent. As such, they probably are old enough to remember Bush II and Rove’s name being splashed accross the media. In shot, the audience probably understands that this author has a slant.
    Also, presumably, they hare not having him report “hard” news. He’s largely doing op-ed pieces; no? If so, every one of those, regarless of the autheor, has a slant.
    It’s not like FOX TV can afford to hire all of them (although I think he did work there for a while; no?).

    Karl Rove is a sleazy fraud whose job it is to pretend that kicking the other party to the curb will change the direction the country is going by voting for his party. History proves otherwise. Those that thought they would see the country head in a new direction by electing Obama as President merely got more of the same, or as some would say Bush on steroids. He’s not called “The Black Bush” for nothing.

    This time electing Romney will not change much either in fact he seems more like a cardboard cut-out placed before the public to absorb as much abuse from the media and their pet Obama … he merely wipes the crap off his face with a clean hankie and goes on to the next stop.

    The real problem are the dirt bags who control both parties and all, or most of the politicians, especially those that get to the level of running for President.
