About the Opinion Section:
The Wall Street Journal’s news pages are committed to informing our readers, and our editorials are dedicated to advocating a consistent philosophy and positions that emanate from it. That philosophy can be summed up as ‘free markets, free people.’
We believe that the ultimate function of opinion journalism is the same as the rest of the newspaper, to inform. But in opinion journalism we have the additional purpose of making an argument for a point of view. We often take sides on the major issues of politics and society, with a goal of moving policies or events in what we think is the best direction for the country and world. In stating our own views forcefully, we hope to raise and sharpen the level of debate and knowledge. And we hope that our editorials reflect not merely the passing whim of passing editors, but a body of thought shaped by a century of tradition.
