More dishonesty from BDL
The NY Times had a Room for Debate forum about Bernanke, the Fed, etc. In Megan McArdle's portion she wrote a fairly blah piece, talking about how some see it this way, some another. DeLong's response? To go after her because "she talks about how Ben Bernanke has been 'recklessly ignoring inflation'." Go read what she wrote. I support criticizing her for her Shape of the Earth type writing, and I agree with DeLong that Bernanke and The Fed are doing too little (I'd put it a slightly different way, but that's splitting hairs at this point), but why lie about what she wrote? Delong has shot whatever remained of his credibility.
