NYT Reporter's Foreclosure Book Leaves Out a "few details"
Megan McArdle of The Atlantic [h/t: Mangan's Miscellany] has discovered that the widely touted [on PBS Evening News & NYTimes Magazine] author who wrote a sob story about his home being foreclosed has a couple of bankruptcy skeletons in his marital closet. Seems his second wife is a serial filer and the seamy details reveal once again that the NYT is the least reliable source of news for honest and sincere factual analysis in the USA, if not the entire planet. Sort of like Pravda when Stalin was its Managing Editor [who was succeeded by Molotov, I believe, whom Pinch Sulzberger uses as his beau ideal of an overall redactor----hence Bill Keller.]
