Krugman Is Officer Number One In The AIF Club Per Okrent

Speaking of Krugman and the Time Machine at the NYT, Daniel Okrent, who until May 25 was the Times' public editor has a lot to tell. In the last column after his 18-month contract, Okrent wrote:

"Op-ed columnist Paul Krugman has the disturbing habit of shaping, slicing and selectively citing numbers in a fashion that pleases his acolytes but leaves him open to substantive assaults." Okrent added that Krugman is ideological and unfair and should be held to higher standards by the man who hired him.

So if you like to be lied to, and told things that you want to hear, without accurate and factual backing you love Krugman. That come from a former NYT internal editor, not me. That should tell one volumes about Krugman's hate based premises and distorted articles. He is the essence of the "Artisan Impressionist Journalist". Here is all you need to know about the Artisan Impressionist Journalist (AIJ) motives of Krugman per Okrent:

It's hardly surprising that the Times would hire a columnist who blames everything wrong in the world on President Bush.

It's Krugman's AIJ view of the world I'd say that make it a harder place to ensure peace, prosperity, and rights for all ...............
