James Taranto of The Wall Street Journal announced that he would be leaving the paper’s “Best of the Web” column to run “the op-ed pages of the newspaper and its digital counterparts” as editorial features editor.

Taranto has a long history of producing overtly sexist content at the Journal. He has claimed that “female sexual freedom” has led to a “war on men,” said attempts to address sexual assault in the military were becoming an “effort to criminalize male sexuality,” and argued that "contemporary feminism" is “based on a false theory of equality.”
