From Felix Salmon, on the Washington Post’s decision to team up with entitlement scold Pete Peterson and former Reader’s Digest editor Jackie Leo to produce a new publication called The Fiscal Times:
With any luck, this will help move the press in general, and WaPo in particular, away from the normal emphasis on who’s winning the political game on Capitol Hill, and towards more substantive analysis of policy issues.
That’s a good one, Felix. I’ve been feeling pretty down this morning, but this gave me a much needed belly laugh. Thanks.
