Wall Street Journal Takes Up Chevron’s Cause

We all take comfort in the rhythms and eternal truths of the universe. Gnats breed lice. Maggots crawl out of corpses. And the Wall Street Journal editorial page will always flak for Chevron, even when they get busted dumping billions of gallons of petrochemical waste in the Amazon. Just after the Goldman Environmental Prize was awared to a lawyer and an Ecuadorian community activist seeking compensation for indigenous tribes living in the poisoned region, the Journal published in editorial, in which editors called Ecuador a “banana republic,” tried to undermine the credibility of the court’s expert witness with no evidence whatsoever, argued that the Ecuadorian government promised never to sue Chevron over the issue, and dismissed the massive toxic catastrophe as just another opportunity for Hollywood liberals to feel good about themselves.
