"[Joe Biden] will be the first modern U.S. president trying to govern in the face of an opposition that refuses to accept his legitimacy..” ~ Paul Krugman... ignoring that Krugman himself called Trump "illegitimate" a few times, not to mention thousands of lefties at left wing media. They did the same to George Bush for a while. NYT sort of corrected themselves, by first stealth changing the quote to make it look not quite as bad, then when they did admit the mistake, they implied it was a few left wing outlets and failed to admit that it was them and Paul Krugman that had both questioned the legitimacy of Trump and Bush. Real journalists don't act like that. But Democrat operatives posing as journalists do.

Paul is an idiot savant, without any special talent. No one in the economic press is as persistently and consistently wrong as he is. There are sites dedicated to debunking and mocking him in economic circles. He even manages to time his flip-flops to be stay wrong when situations change. So while Mini-Marx (Robert Reich III), often tries to keep up, he's just not in the same caliber.
A never great News Agency has become a shadow of their former self: admittedly biased by their own Ombudsman and editors, as well as exposed confessions. They still have occasionally good content, but that can't make up for their more frequent bad, or their willingness to deceive, commit lies of omission, or present things in a biased way. (Never trusting their readership with the whole truth). More than that, some insist on idol worship for what they publish, and abject denial of their obvious and omitted bias: and that fuels the backlash against them.
