National Review's Jonah Goldberg praises TAL for financial crisis reporting
Right wing extremist Jonah Goldberg, in follow-up re Mike Daisey and This American Life:
More to the point, This American Life is not a reflexively liberal program. Sure, it’s liberal. But their coverage of the financial crisis was simply fantastic, from any ideological perspective. And I still think their story on the auto industry and the auto unions was one of the best investigations of its sort ever done.Look, TAL's financial reporting is bad because it's bad (i.e.), not because some right winger says it's "simply fantastic." But the latter does bear noting.
