Happy to see WSJ taking a stand against cancel culture in response to the letter signed by the paper's reporters essentially asking for censorship of the opinion page. I read the opinion piece they took exception to, saw it was written by Mike Pence, and treated it with skepticism. The Journal carries similar opinion pieces by left leaning politicians I treat with similar skepticism. They are clearly labeled as opinion pieces.
