Today Dean Baker of the Center for Economic and Policy Research expands his criticism of NPR's decision to air economist Laurence Kotlikoff on the federal debt.
Baker's thesis: "There's nothing wrong with having Kotlikoff present his views on NPR. But the station has the responsibility to ensure that it is done in a context where it is providing information, not just spreading scare stories. This piece only did the latter."
