Dan Okrent: Still a Tool

Go read the Daily Howler's second item today on Dan Okrent's disgraceful Sunday farewell column as NYT public editor. It concerns the following bit:

Reader Steven L. Carter of Bala Cynwyd, Pa., asks, If "Tucker Carlson is identified as a conservative" in The Times, then why is "Bill Moyers just, well, plain old Bill Moyers"? Good question.

It turns out, when you check Lexis Nexis, this isn't such a good question.

Meanwhile, Krugman is not only being attacked by Okrent but also Greg Mankiw these days, now that N. Gregory is done whoring himself to the Bush administration. (DeLong gets into more substance in posts like this one).
