Babbling Brooks

Reading a David Brooks column is often enough to send steam whistling out of ears. And so it was today with his latest trove of outirght lies and economic misinformation, which the NY Times still sees as "fit to print." I guess Brooks' continued forum represents our liberal media's concern for balance: facts and lies, smarts and idiocy are given equal voice on the valuable op-ed pages.

I was expecting Paul Krugman would issue a take down of the insipid Brooks but I am happy to see that Dean Baker, co-director of the Center for Economic and Policy Research, has already destroyed Brooks' nonsense with his broadside,
David Brooks Sets Record for Most Economic Errors in An Oped Column!
