Today's NYT Article on Default Is Wrong in Headline and Substance

Pretty well-written article by a guy I went to elementary school with...

http://www.aei-ideas.org/2013/10/tod...and-substance/

"Given how arcane the debt-limit debate can get, wouldn’t it help if we had responsible reporting? Today’s New York Times story by Jonathan Weisman, “Many in G.O.P. Offer Theory: Default Wouldn’t Be That Bad,” seems to get the definition of “default” wrong. Or at least isn’t understanding what the GOP congressman quoted are saying. Default, in the bond market, means missing a bond payment. If you haven’t read it yet, the article quotes various Republicans who are arguing that the government will indeed be able to meet its debt obligations, for some time at least, even if the debt-limit is not raised."

Remainder of article is available via the above link.

A misleading and poorly written article in the NY Times. Imagine that.....
