Is This Rupert's Handiwork?

Looks like what many people were afraid would happen is happening over at Rupert Murdoch's latest acquisition, the Wall Street Journal: Rupert is throwing his weight around. This is an excerpt from a recent story:

Mississippi's Tort Reform Triumph By STEPHEN MOORE May 10, 2008

James Copland of the Manhattan Institute's Center for Legal Policy reports that, thanks to big Democratic gains in state legislatures in 2006, trial lawyers from coast to coast have replenished their army of allies in state capitals. "The legislatures are busy at work repealing many of the reforms while creating new rights to sue, through such scams as patient bill of rights laws," he says.

Mr. Moore is senior economics writer for The Wall Street Journal editorial page.

Patient bill of rights is a scam? I did not know that. Thanks for clearing that up for me, Rupert.
