The Wall Street Journal is a conservative business media outlet. It is owned by News Corp, founded by Rupert Murdoch. That media tycoon currently heads 21st Century Fox. Fox News is part of the latter.
Yet, last night The Wall Street Journal published an editorial in which it put out there this: Donald Trump "clings to his assertion [that his campaign headquarters was bugged by the Obama Administration] like a drunk to an empty gin bottle."
The editorial notes that the claim of wiretapping had been "debunked." The language and imagery leveraged by the news outlet is street, not the usual elite.
In a sense, The Wall Street Journal, just like The New York Times, has gone to war with the Trump Administration. And in a theatrical manner.
That image of a drunk could become "sticky," especially visually. It would bounce into the global memory bank of all audiences for the president's statements.
Moreover, the drunk analogy could harden into the historical narrative of the days of Trumpville.
