GIGOT: Time now for "Hits and Misses" of the week.
Joe, first to you.
RAGO: Joe, a surprise hit this week to President Obama for naming Jim Kim to the World Bank. He passed over the usual ex-politicians and ex- bankers for the Dartmouth president and medical doctor. He brings an outsider perspective to a dysfunctional institution and may actually do some tangible good for the world's poor. It's an inspired pick.
GIGOT: Except we're not sure how good it is for Jim Kim going into that snake pit.
TARANTO: A miss for Gannett, the newspaper company. Their Wisconsin media investigative team did an expose of 29 state judges who had signed a petition to recall Governor Scott Walker. They called it watch dog journalism in the finest sense. Then it turned out that 25 Gannett reporters signed the petition as well. The Gannett revealed his in the interest of full transparency but did not disclose the names of the reporters. Paul, who will watch the watch dogs?
GIGOT: All right.
HENNINGER: Paul, a hit for the people described in recent stories as avoiding the new iPhones and clinging to their ancient cell phones, like this 6-yeawr-old Samsung 707. Now, I'm not a technophobe. I love carrying around 25 books on my e-reader, but I'm all for anybody trying to minimize their interface or not be captured by the world of computer engineers.
GIGOT: That's surprisingly slick. Why don't you have a big -- real clunkers?
HENNINGER: I got in on the ground floor.
I was reluctant to get one of those big ones.
GIGOT: All right.
That's it for this week's edition of the "Journal Editorial Report." Thanks to my panel and to all of you for watching. I'm Paul Gigot. We hope to see you right here next week.
