    Deep In His Cave, Paul Krugman Ponders Things He Chooses Not To Know

    Deep In His Cave, Paul Krugman Ponders Things He Chooses Not To Know

    Paul Krugman (emphasis mine):

    I don’t watch cable news, or actually any kind of TV news. But I gather that there’s a virtual blackout on the huge demonstrations in Wisconsin, except on Fox, which portrays them as thuggish and violent.

    What that makes me think of is January-February 2003, when anyone watching cable news would have believed that only a few kooks were opposed to the imminent invasion of Iraq. It was quite spooky, realizing that hundreds of thousands of people could march through New York, and by tacit agreement be ignored by news networks whose headquarters were just a few blocks away.

    And it’s even more spooky to see it happening all over again.

    Yes, everyone outside the Krugman cave knows that no one is paying attention to the Madison protests, except people who watch CBS :

    Or ABC:

    Or any of the NBC affiliated cable stations:

    Or the internet.

    Just think, if there were television back in 2002, we might never have invaded Iraq.

    Paul Krugman said, "But I gather …"

    Paul, when you leave that cave to go hunting and gathering, … I'd stick to the hunting because you don't seem to gather too well. Of course, I can't really picture you hunting, either.

    "I don't know, not having watched any tv and not having all the facts, I think it's fair to say the networks acted stupidly."

    All the news that's fit to stint.

    I'm laughing so hard because PK is paid a bunch of money to make things up, instead of reporting facts, by – wait for it – a news organization. Wow, that's just got to be the best prank ever played on folks who think they're perusing a "news" publication but are reading comedic fiction instead. Those guys. That NYT bunch are just the funniest New Yorkers ever.

    Paul Krugman can read? I don't believe it.
