HORNET'S NEST STIRRING
"It's hard to know how seriously one is supposed to take a Matt Taibb," writes Brad DeLong, but the one prerequisite for taking any journalist seriously is that facts be correct. In Taibbi's latest, "Obama's Big Sellout,"

"When an author is apparently as clueless as to what was going on a year ago as Matt Taibbi is, one has to wonder just how seriously one is supposed to take anything he writes. It's a purple rhetorical exercise in overstatement--we hope.

But in case anyone is tempted to take its truthiness as truth, its factoids as facts, let me lay down ten markers. I could lay down 50."
