WSJ: You (Sadly) Get What You Pay For

WSJ legal editor Ashby Jones seems to have some journalistic chops as a former reporter for The Deal and American Lawyer Media, but the former litigator/federal judge clerk can't hide behind the trend to relinquish journalistic expertise in favor of a publication's credibility-costing bottom line. This is lazy and flawed writing. I wish I could say it's the first time I've seen such in the Wall Street Journal. You get what you pay for.Perhaps the suffering print business might bring back quality writers with experience who know how to put words together? A novel idea.
