The WSJ is two quite separate pages. The editorial page people and the
news people hardly even nod to each other in passing. Hence "relentless
hostility" does not necessarily apply to the news staff. The assumption
seems to be that the paper has two different audiences. One audience
wants information. The other audience wants to have their prejudices
stroked. The news pages address the former, the editorial & op-ed pages
address the latter.
