OpinionJournal.com was a website featuring content from the editorial pages of The Wall Street Journal. It existed separately from the news content at wsj.com until January 2008, when it was merged into the main website. The editorials (titled “Review & Outlook”) reflected The Journal’s conservative political editorial line, as did its regular columnists, who included Peggy Noonan, John Fund, and Daniel Henninger.
