Claim: WSJ's privacy series needs a conflict disclosure

Romenesko Letters
"The Journal's use of a pay wall, and its sale of Personally Identifiable Information (PII), give it a vested financial interest in scaring readers about the cookies that keep most of the web free," writes Bill Brazell. "The Journal should disclose at the beginning of every privacy story it publishes that it collects and sells PII."
