Sometimes They're Right, But Don't Call Them Scholars!

George Leef

That seems to be the dismissive approach of The New York Times when it turns out that a professor who favors the free market and opposes crony capitalism is proven to be right. Professor Jonathan Bean writes here about the treatment of his book about the politicization of the Small Business Administration at the hands of a NYT writer.

At the Times and many other places in the thrall of statism, work that calls into question the supposed desirability of government expansion is reflexively criticized as "ideological." Why won't they treat arguments on their own merits?
