Pravda on the Hudson Snidely Reports Liberal Bias

"So how does the New York Times handle the release of the study? With a snide story by Eduardo Porter -- exactly one of the biased economics reporters the study is talking about (thanks to reader Jill Olson for the link). Less than half the story is given to explaining the study. The rest is dirt on the authors that Porter dug up, and a line-up of "experts" tearing the story down -- every single one of which is somehow Democratically biased, ranging from former Clinton appointees to leftist attack dog economist Brad DeLong. Porter ends the story with a comment from DeLong -- giving him the last word, as it were. And it's nothing but pure nastiness, devoid of any substantive economic thought."
