Comments on: Reinhart explains that Greenspan quote http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2010/05/04/reinhart-explains-that-greenspan-quote/ A slice of lime in the soda Sun, 26 Oct 2014 19:05:02 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Augustus http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2010/05/04/reinhart-explains-that-greenspan-quote/comment-page-1/#comment-14433 Wed, 05 May 2010 07:37:59 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/?p=3699#comment-14433 All Grim has going for him is a convincing capability of creating situations which did not occur, enhanced by his 20/20 hindsight. My guess is that in real time he would not be capable of finding his way out of a two man tent before he peed his pants.

Grim’s editorial methods may not be above reproach but he has at least this much going for him over Greenspan: not being the one tacitly riding the entire U.S. economy into the waiting arms of hijackers.

And, as a blogger, that should bother you, Felix. If Grim worked for the New York Times or Wall Street Journal, he would be fired for clearly misrepresenting the quote. Since he’s a blogger, noting happens. Because there is no check on bloggers, every such lie diminishes the credibility of others who blog.

Can’t let that pesky little thing called truth get in the way, eh?
