New York Times "public editor" Barney Calame absolutely blasts Paul Krugman and Times opinion page editor Gail Collins:
Columnist Correction Policy Isn't Being Applied to KrugmanMr. Calame's revelations and evident exasperation raise some other bottom-line questions:
Is the Times (with the presumed acquiescence of its Chairman) publishing a violent disagreement over a willful and error-haunted Times columnist between two of its most important editors without a willingness, or even a plan, to have one or more of the three people involved leave the paper?
Can the Times public editor challenge the credibility of the Times on its own pages, and assert that the paper's corrections policy is being outright flaunted, without major repercussions?
Given the violent and intemperate reaction of Herr Doktorprofessor to criticisms leveled at him by the Times' prior public editor, how likely is it that this situation is not going to become rapidly and highly inflamed - with Herr Doktorprofessor resorting to his customary paranoid rants, superheated accusations and apocalyptic doomsaying?
Does any sensible person expect that the Times reporters and columnists other than Herr Doktorprofessor - and Times competitors - will sit still while all this goes on?
Don Luskin has been tracking these developments on his blog and on National Review Online. Looks like there will be lots more for him to report in the near future. Fasten your seatbelts, it's going to be a bumpy night at the New York Times. In fact, lots of them!

I don't know you but I love the world where we live in, especially for the new technology and now it seems to me impossible to stay without.
The things that I prefer are all kind of little stuff that I can keep in my pourse. As you can imagine my cell phone play a center role in my daily life.
I can't resist to motorola ringtone. I get tired of a new one quickly so I want a new one, immediately. The good part is I'm a student so my parents pay for them and further to make a monthly account is not difficult.
Time to go back to study.
