wsj.com — This column has long argued that the journalistic genre known as "fact checking" is a corruption of journalism. "The 'fact check' is opinion journalism or criticism, masquerading as straight news," we wrote in 2008. "The object is not merely to report facts but to pass a judgment."

Trump Is Now Normal

wsj.com — Hillary Clinton must've won the debate.
