The Best Editorial Page Online

is easily Investor's Business Daily.  IBD published easy to read editorials that show the obvious benefits of free markets and capitalism.  A sample:

Economy: Economists were surprised Friday when the Commerce Department reported that growth in the second quarter of this year was a mere 1.2%. But the real surprise is that anyone is surprised when the economy underperforms, since that's what it has been doing for the past seven years.

Election 2016: Two weeks, two major political conventions, and both parties are showing the strain from the ideological fractures among their followers. Can the two-party system, a bedrock of American politics, survive as it is now? That's an open question.

Election 2016: Hillary Clinton's acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention Thursday night was one more effort on her part to "reintroduce" herself to wary American voters. Did it work?

Obamacare: That was Ron Pollack, president of Families USA — which was one of the loudest proponents of Obamacare and which got paid $1 million in 2013 to produce pro-ObamaCare propaganda — at a press event in Philadelphia this week about what needs to come next on health reform.

Democratic Convention: What can you expect from economic policy from a Hillary Clinton White House? You already know. Just look at the last 7-1/2 years under President Obama.

Email Scandal:  It's a general rule of thumb that when a leak hurts Republicans, the media focus on the leak. But when the leak hurts a Democrat, the media focus on the nefarious motives of the leaker. This bias has on bold display in the wake of the release of hacked DNC emails last Friday.
