has really lost its way. The Sunday business section used to be filled with numerous well written pieces from personal finance to investing techniques and professionals. The articles used to have a balance of business-critical and pro-business slants. I read a lot of business journalism and I held the writers in high esteem even though I didn't always agree with them. Two writers that always produced quality work were Alan Sloan and Chet Currier.
A couple of years ago there was a big change. The Sunday business section is now nearly worthless. The main authors appear to have a very negative outlook on the business world and it participants. Combined Pearlstein, Singletary and Ritholtz have not written an article that I have found of value in ages.
I have been a post subscriber for over 25 years and the main it thing of value to me was the Sunday Business Section. I still make a point of looking at it every week and I am invariably disappointed. This is sad.
Just read a commentary by Steven Pearlstein in Sep 30 Sunday section. The commentary is yet another anti-capitalist piece. How is it that the Post has only anti-business writers? It is a business section and most readers do not hold such negative views of business. Ritholtz and Pearlstein need to be canned and replaced with writers that display a more balanced viewpoint.
