Once again the Washington

“Once again, the Washington press corps is getting creamed on a major story — this privatization of the federal workforce for patronage purposes — by a guy with a day job.” Those words are Eric Alterman’s. And he’s talking about Paul Krugman’s column in Tuesday’s Times. I’d read the piece earlier in the day but after reading Eric’s mention I realized that I really needed to mention it here just in case anyone hasn’t seen it yet. This is a very, very important column and it shows just why Krugman is so important in today’s media ecosystem. By the way, there’s an excellent article coming out in a few weeks on just that topic — Krugman, that is. More on that soon. Now back to Blood on the Tracks
