The Wall Street Journal recently reported about the increasing number of local U.S. elected officials who object to the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) forced widespread installation of 5G small cell technology — a la the “Race for 5G.”
The story was big enough that it made Drudge Report’s featured headlines, bringing additional awareness to this critical issue.
However, the WSJ also pooh-pooh these objections even though telecom execs won’t say 5G safe. What’s totally weird and tacky about the WSJ now taking this pro-telecom stance is that in 2014 they sympathetically reported how 1 in 10 U.S. cell tower/grids violated RF safety rules and there weren’t enough employees to fix this.
Warnings about 5G have also been cited by:
- Doctors and scientists (see 1, 2, 3)
- Environmentalists (see 1, 2, 3)
- Engineers (see 1, 2)
- Meteorologists, NASA, NOAA, the U.S. Navy
- Security experts
- Tech enthusiasts
- Utility companies
But none of that seems to be relevant. Early in the article, the journalist points out that the World Health Organization classified non-ionizing wireless radiation as “possibly carcinogenic” and in the same category as coffee and pickles. Um yeah – but chloroform, engine exhaust and lead are in that category too.
There are reports about 5G is already operating in some communities and people and their pets becoming sick from exposure (see 1, 2, 3). But WSJ instead blames social media and “conspiracy theorists” as the biggest reason people are opposed to small cell towers being installed in front of homes, schools, and pretty much everywhere else.

The American Academy of Pediatrics and other health experts have warned that children are more susceptible to harm from exposure to ALL SOURCES of cell phone and WiFi radiation than adults. This includes 5G. Adding 5G to the mix of the current sources of Electromagnetic Radiation (aka Electrosmog) we’re already being exposed to isn’t good for them or anyone else.
So why has the WSJ changed its tone since 2014 with all of this new evidence available? Who knows — maybe like The New York Times, they’re vying for a “joint venture” for 5G journalism lab.
