Oh the irony

I talked recently about the split between the fantasies of the Wall Street Journal’s editorial page and their frequently admirable news coverage. Case in point, brought to my attention by reader Jeremy Dorin: yesterday’s edition, on the editorial pages of which one can find a piece by Christina Hoff Summers which declares, “Suppose we got rid of the hyperbole [by feminists], half-truths, and untruths. Surely, some would argue, it would still turn out that women in our society are worse off than men? There is simply no evidence for that.”

Meanwhile, on the front page, a news item announces, “”Women Remain well behind men in reaching the highest salary bracket, and are far more likely to live in poverty, the Census Bureau said.”
