NYT's Krugman: Slamming the Fantasy World of Glenn Beck

For others who missed Paul Krugman column from last Thursday’s New York Times, it’s worth a look. Krugman nails the Fox fantasist Glenn Beck for quoting reports that he can’t produce. Krugman says:

“Thus, last week Glenn Beck — who seems to be challenging Rush Limbaugh for the role of de facto leader of the G.O.P. — informed his audience of a “buried” Obama administration study showing that Waxman-Markey would actually cost the average family $1,787 per year. Needless to say, no such study exists.”

You really have to wonder who’s inspiring Beck to make this stuff up.
