What Would We Do Without Experts?

The following is an excerpt from OpinionJournal’s “Best of the Web” at WSJ written by the editor, James Taranto.

What Would We Do Without Experts?
“Experts Reveal How to Make Perfect Cheese on Toast”—headline, Daily Telegraph (London), April 14

Question and Answer—II

  • “It’s Official, Hillary Clinton for 2016! Why Her Best Looks Go Beyond the Pantsuit” – headline, Vogue, April 12
  • “Hillary’s Moment in Pink: Tuesday’s defensive press conference recalls another one – two decades ago.” – headline and subheadline, Politico, March 10


Other Than That, the Story Was Accurate

  • “An earlier version of this article incorrectly described changes to rules on foreign contributions that the Clinton Foundation had said it would consider. It said it might reinstitute some restrictions on the contributions. It did not say it might ban them.”—New York Times website, April 12
  • “Correction 12:22 p.m. Tuesday: It turns out ‘Marco Rubio’ can spell out ‘Birac Uromo,’ but his name is missing the additional ’b’ and ‘a’ you’d need to spell out ‘Uboma.’ So while you can technically spell ‘Birac Uboma’ with letters from Rubio’s name, it’s not an actual anagram.”—Washington Post website, April 14
