    Morning Bell: A Legacy That Matters

    The Bush administration is hopping mad at the New York Times for a story the Gray Lady published Sunday, “White House Philosophy Stoked Mortgage Bonfire.” The White House will have to defend itself on this one, but we are concerned that the Times, in its partisan desire to tarnish President … More

    Paul Krugman 'Egregiously Wrong' on Fannie and Freddie

    Nobel Laureate Paul Krugman did some fine work on international trade theory 20 years ago. When he writes about economic policy today, however, he often just gets his facts dead wrong. This past summer Krugman devoted an op-ed to exonerating Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac from their key role in … More

    NYT Wrong, LAT Right on Housing

    We don’t know what reality the New York Times editorial board lives in, but it is definitely not the same one Los Angels Times hard news reporters operate in. Today the NYT editorializes: In an election year, sound policy making is almost always trumped by political posturing, making the situation … More

    New York Times Admits Drilling Can Lower Gas Prices

    In their editorial today celebrating Barack Obama’s victory of Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination, the New York Times attacks John McCain and his promise to appoint conservative judges to the bench. They write: Mr. McCain predictably criticized liberal judges, vowed strict adherence to the Founders’ views and promised to … More

    Is This Really What The New York Times Thinks Free Markets Look Like?

    In an otherwise admirable editorial highlighting a new report that shows New York City paid 235 teachers $81 million over two years to do nothing, the New York Times includes this paragraph: Under the new free-market system, teachers who lose their jobs because of budget cuts, program curtailments or school … More

    The New York Times' Latest Swipe at the Justice Department

    Despite Eliot Spitzer’s recent fall and the partial exposure of his hypocrisy in strong-arming businesses and business leaders under investigation, one of Spitzer’s chief enablers – the New York Times – apparently still has never seen a corporate prosecution it hasn’t liked. On its front page today, the NYT takes … More
