Sad, Cynical reaction from Yglesias about op-eds

Again, nothing annoys me more than unadulterated lies and distortions that go out unchallenged. More evidence that we cannot rely on the mainstream media for fair and accurate reporting. It's a shame.

Of course if being accurate were a requirement for op-ed pieces, then more than one national newspaper columnist might be out of a job. So given the current economic downturn, I think it's important to keep letting people make stuff up.
