Brad DeLong tears Alan Reynolds apart

Brad DeLong's Semi-Daily Journal: Fair and Balanced Almost Every Day: Intellectual Garbage Collection: The Unreliability of Alan Reynolds

I know better than to sully my brain with the contents of the Wall Street Journal editorial page. The rest of the newspaper is actually a first rate newspaper. It has replaced the New York Times as my must-read newspaper, mostly because of the disasters the Times have had with its Iraq coverage, as well as just plain inability to comprehend science. I'm a subscriber and will very likely renew. I just don't read the editorial pages, unless it's something written by Al Gore.

Doesn't that just sound as if Mr. DeLong is either unwilling or unable to respond to a statistical argument by challenging either the logic or the data? Does he really expect people to believe that everything that has ever appeared on the editorial page of the largest U.S. newspaper can be assumed to be false?

Read Delong's blog post in detail. Looks like he covers both the logic and data to me. That the Wall Street Journal editorial pages are full of garbage is no secret --- even the Economist has noted that.
