Robert Leroy Bartley was the editor of the editorial page of The Wall Street Journal for more than 30 years.

Activities

Bartley won a Pulitzer Prize for opinion writing and received the Presidential Medal of Freedom from the Bush administration in 2003. Bartley was famed for providing a conservative interpretation of the news every day, especially regarding economic issues.[1] The Forbes Media Guide Five Hundred, 1994 states:

Editor Bartley's influence stems largely from his intelligent, fearless editorship of the Journal's editorial and op-ed pages.[2]

He was in attendance at the 1961 and 1964 Bilderbergs as "Bertie Le Roy".
