The Wall Street Journal has been a financial newspaper since its founding in 1889. Writers at the libertarian website, LewRockwell.com, have accused the Journal of having a neoconservative foreign policy and have dubbed the newspaper The War Street Journal since at least February 2001. “War Street Journal” was used frequently with respect to the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
“War Street Journal” has also been used at least once before 2001, in 1993. Other nicknames of The Wall Street Journal include “Capitalist Bible” and “Wall Street Urinal.”
Wikipedia: The Wall Street Journal
The Wall Street Journal is an American English-language international daily newspaper. It is published in New York City by Dow Jones & Company, a division of News Corporation, along with the Asian and European editions of the Journal.
The Journal is the largest newspaper in the United States, by circulation. According to the Audit Bureau of Circulations, it has a circulation of 2.1 million copies (including 400,000 online paid subscriptions), as of March 2010, compared to USA Today‘s 1.8 million. Its main rival, in the business newspaper sector, is the London-based Financial Times, which also publishes several international editions.
The Journal primarily covers American economic and international business topics, and financial news and issues. Its name derives from Wall Street, located in New York City, which is the heart of the financial district; it has been printed continuously since its inception on July 8, 1889, by Charles Dow, Edward Jones, and Charles Bergstresser. The newspaper version has won the Pulitzer Prize thirty-three times, including 2007 prizes for its reporting on backdated stock options and the adverse effects of China’s booming economy.

Subject: Man threatens to get even for War on Drugs autrocity???
It seems that, there may be some truth to my 1989 internet prediction that citizens vivtimized by the War on Drugs will start to react in the same way as citizens vicimized by occupying forces elsewhere in the world: by fighting back. It is fortunate to fight back against unconstitutional and immoral actions, but such retaliaton should not be unconstitutional or immoral itself. The War Street Journal ran a short paragraph that may [or may not] be a descrtipion of a War on Drugs victim fighting back, but threatening to go too far [it was unclear if his threat was due to the War on Drugs.]

Deconstructing the War Street Journal
by Thomas J. DiLorenzo
The Wall Street Journal recently criticized “the denizens of LewRockwell.com” for some of their allegedly “intemperate” criticisms of Lincoln (William McGurn, “House Divided: Did Abe Have the Right Stuff?”, Feb. 9, 2001).

DEATH & THE WALL STREET JOURNAL LACK OF U.S. CASUALTIES IN
By: Justin Raimondo
THE WAR STREET JOURNAL Varney is such a nice guy that he has no idea of the evil right in front of his eyes. Bloodlust shocks him, as it does most Americans (at least the native-born ones. Cruelty and lack of regard for human life is not – yet – characteristic of American life). But perhaps Varney was merely feigning innocence, and his remarks were really meant to be ironical. Lew Rockwell has dubbed Bartley and his crew the “War Street Journal” and that about says it all. Is there a war, anywhere, that they haven’t supported, and, more, demanded that we escalate?

Goyette was calling the WSJ the “War” Street Journal last week on his show for their “blind support” of the administration of the war in Iraq.
The Treasonous War Street Journal

In today’s War Street Journal the former movie reviewer Dorothy Rabinowitz, who now apparently fancies herself as a foreign policy expert (!), calls Ron Paul the chief propagandist of “our enemies.”
