WSJ Plays the Stooge for Anti-Union Gunsel Rick Berman

As the hardtsking staff has diligently noted lo these many years, Rick Berman is a hired gun American corporations use to fight labor unions, public-health advocates, and consumer, safety, animal welfare, and environmental groups, according to Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, or CREW, an unabashedly left-leaning organization.

Yesterday’s Wall Street Journal featured yet another instance of Berman’s wet work, in the form of this op-ed.

Honey, I Shrunk the Union

The Service Employees International Union last week held yet another national protest. The “racial justice-themed Fight for $15 day of action” spread to dozens of cities but failed to live up to the hype.

A few dozen people showed up in Boston. The turnout appeared even smaller in San Diego. The Chicago Coalition for the Homeless tweeted a picture of “16 homeless workers.” The union should be embarrassed. Ignore the SEIU’s political theatrics and Potemkin protests, and you’ll find a cash-strapped group waging a losing war.

Potemkin protests? That’s Rick Berman’s middle name.

From CREW’s



So, to the point here.

The Wall Street Journal should have disclosed Rick Berman’s financial interest in the failure of SEIU’s fight for a $15 minimum wage.

But it didn’t.

Then again, the Journal has been suckered by Berman before.

So maybe the paper just doesn’t care.
