And you shouldn't get angry at a lefty hack for being a lefty hack.
I don't blame MIT Economist Jonathan Gruber for this laughable piece of analysis that purports to claim that Obamacare is a net gain to the economy less than a week after the Congressional Budget Office released a report that estimated Obamacare will reduce employment by 2.5 million full-time equivalent positions over the next decade.
Who I do blame is the Los Angeles Times for their vanilla tagline describing Mr. Gruber.
Jonathan Gruber is a professor of economics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and a member of the Scholars Strategy Network.
What the Times didn't bother to tell its readers is that Mr. Gruber has been paid almost $300,000 by the Obama administration for "special studies and analysis" of health care bills.
This is pretty poor journalism not to disclose this fact, but not unexpected by the left-leaning editorial page.
Don't let journalists sell you on their unbiased umpire who calls 'em as they see 'em schtick. The difference between journalism now and journalism more than a decade ago is that journalists in 20th century at least made an effort to fake impartiality.
Journalism. Wound. Self-inflicted.
