A Missouri lawmaker plays Wall Street Journal editor – for just 34 seconds


Both of these headlines deserve the front page. @WSJ

That tweet was deleted after 34 seconds, according to the Sunlight Foundation. “Her Twitter account did not respond to my request for an explanation,” the foundation’s Nicko Margolies writes in an email. I called Congresswoman Ann Wagner’s office to find out why she thought the stories deserved front page play, and why the tweet was deleted so fast. Wagner aide Brett Mulvihill said he’d look into it (“it was probably a mistake”) and get back to me. I’ll keep you posted.
