There have been so many twists and turns in the #OpenAI melodrama! But here's one that I definitely didn't have on my Bing-o card: #Microsoft tacitly admitted that no one doing serious engineering wants to use their terrible software. According to "The Biggest Winner in the OpenAI Fiasco" from #wsj:
"Microsoft prepared to give those [OpenAI] engineers everything they needed to continue their work: a floor in LinkedIn’s offices, plentiful cloud-computing resources, #Apple laptops. The trillion-dollar company’s employees assured their potential colleagues that they wouldn’t even have to use Microsoft’s workplace-communications app #Teams."
The absurdity of it only makes sense by WSJ editors stripping context in order to support their bogus framing.

This came across my newsfeed just now and I quote from the Wall Street Journal:
"Israel-Hamas War Puts Palestinians Back on Arab World's Agenda
Israel’s fierce response to Hamas’s cross-border assault has reinvigorated support for Palestinians in the Arab world and stirred popular anger—not just at Israel and the U.S., but also at Arab governments. #press "
^^ This presents an argument that Hamas already won the war. The main Hamas objective was to put the kibosh on the Abraham Accord, which caused Arab states to basically throw Palestine under the bus.
Anybody throwing Palestine under the bus is gonna need a bigger bus.
Wall Street Journal's Joanna Stern (@joannastern) does a great job explaining the current state of EV charging in America. Basically, not great. That's a big problem for EV adoption as many people are concerned about range anxiety and where and how to charge. There's a lot of work to do.
Even #LinaKhan - the bogeywoman of the *WSJ* editorial page - got a warm reception at her fireside chat:
Looking for a book to read? It's nearing that time of year again (I won't mention the C-word yet), so sharing a gift idea: "Bad Blood", a 2018 book detailing the story of health start-up #Theranos and founder Elizabeth #Holmes. An excellently horrifying business story and page-turner by John #Carreyrou from his time at the #WSJ.
Fascinating for me was the lack of due-diligence by investors, and how the race for the "next big thing" in technology often clouds one's judgement.

The Wall Street Journal - November 7, 2023
“Most of Signature’s loans are performing. Nevertheless, the FDIC and Newmark Group, the real-estate firm running the sale, are going to have to sell them at discounts partly because they were made when interest rates were a lot lower than today.”

imo, very interesting. Complex moral challenge. Revoking employment is a ridiculous idea though. It merely prolongs the debate. Solomon isolated the hypothetical.

The #RiteAid bankruptcy had been coming for a long time.
In the late 1990s, it had offered a friend (in writing) a job at and relocation to its distribution facility in Lancaster, CA. After packing his home into a moving van, they backed out. He was then effectively homeless. (He should have sued.)
At the time, it had already been making front-page news in #WSJ about how the son of its founder took the reigns and expanded it too quickly.

The Wall Street Journal is claiming that Iran backed the Hamas attack according to Hamas official. No other (reputable) outlet has backed that claim, and both US and Israel say there’s no evidence. Iran has also denied responsibility.
The United States could send a second group of aircraft carriers to the coast of Israel, The Wall Street Journal said, citing #Pentagon representatives.
Gaza has no air force, not tanks, no armored vehicles, no air defense and nothing but home made weapons.
Israel is the 6th strongest military in the world and US is now sending a second Aircraft carrier to support them?
This is the country that tells the world, they stand for the weak, against the aggressors in #Ukraine.
But in Israel, they side with the occupation power and the apartheid regime.

The #WSJ article about the #Writers Strike leaves me to infer that writers will get more money but there will be fewer writers, and jobs, thereby preserving high incomes for the studio execs at the expense of writers and consumers. That places striking writers alongside execs in the same little club of people who are out to do what is best for them. Programming descreases. Number employed as writers decreases. Execs keep their money.
'Unhinged' Trump’s 'lunacy' will be GOP’s downfall if they nominate him: WSJ editorial board
In a September 22 rant on his Truth Social platform, former President Donald Trump angrily railed against Gen. Mark Milley — chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff — and implied that he deserves to be executed.
Let us all follow
To understand why they will give a huge advantage to the fight by the Ukrainian forces, and are significantly different from the Storm Shadow / SCALP missiles, watch this short explainer by #WSJ:
Documents reviewed by The #WSJ show that its executives strategised on how to downplay concerns about global warming and they tried to muddle scientific findings that might harm its oil and gas business.
Fossil fuel companies should be excluded from all current and future climate discussions.

Take the *#WSJ*: since Khan took office, they have published *67 vicious editorials* attacking her. Khan is living rent-free in #RupertMurdoch's head. Not only that, she's got the presidential suite! You love to see it.
These attacks are worth reading, if only to see how flimsy and frivolous they are. One major subgenre is that Khan shouldn't be bringing any action against Amazon, because her groundbreaking scholarship about the company means she has a conflict of interest.

@JacquelynGill - Settle in for a Sunday Junk Science take-down!
In this opinion piece, Milloy’s opinion gets an F in accuracy, but it's an absolute master-class in denialist propaganda. He employs the classic tactic of discrediting experts with what seem to be reasonable, obvious statements. They’re superficial and easy to discredit, but the point is to hijack the narrative.
The #WSJ opinion pages remain a den of denial.
They're owned by the Murdoch media empire, after all.
#ClimateDeniers are loud, but in fact
"Most Americans say they know we’re facing a monumental climate threat. They just need to be convinced that other people tend to feel exactly the same way and that they have the power to do something about it."
If you still read and/or pay for the #WSJ, consider the fact the its editorial board just wrote "303 Creative v. Elenis Is a Victory for Free Speech and Pluralism: The Supreme Court supports the right of a business to dissent from dominant cultural views."
The idea that anti-discrimination and equality for all is merely a "cultural view" rather than an ideal literally expressed in the very Constitution and laws, is offensive. The white patriarchal theocratic gaslighting is loathsome.

I quit reading the #WSJ quite awhile ago due to some obvious partisan spin. Now I know it does absolutely no fact-checking on opinion pieces and is in bed with Alito.
Just giving a public official an open mic to prebut an article about his lavish conflicts of interest and then defending him is not journalism: it's advocacy.
WSJ editorial board defends Alito, calls ProPublica report 'non-scandal built on partisan spin'-
Today I cancelled my subscription to the #WSJ and started a monthly donation to #ProPublica for the same amount that I was paying monthly to WSJ. The ProPublica app now occupies the place on my tablet where the WSJ app once sat, for years. You can guess why I made this change.
Thank you for your excellent journalism, and I am excited to now be PAYING ATTENTION.
The GOP fringe imposes incredible discipline on their leaders. Take all the nonsense about "woke capitalism": on the one hand, it's absurd to call union-busting, tax-dodging, worker-screwing companies "woke" (even if they sell Pride flags a couple of weeks a year).
But on the other hand? The GOP leadership have actually *declared war* on the biggest corporations in America, to the point that the *#WSJ* says that "Republicans and Big Business broke up":
It seems that the #WSJ needs to add another year: 2023.
Inside Wagner, Russia’s Secret War Company
The Wall Street Journal’s latest documentary “Shadow Men: Inside Russia’s Secret War Company” goes deep inside the lethal global expansion of the Russian private military company Wagner — tracing the group's evolution from a small, guns-for-hire operation into a sprawling network of businesses that has been active on four continents.
The tacit social contract between the #WSJ and its readers is this: the editorial page is for ideology, and the news section is for reality. Money talks and bullshit walks - and reality's well-known anticapitalist bias means that hewing too closely to ideology will make you broke, and thus unable to push your ideology.
