Financial writer Donald Luskin Fisks Okrent’s column within an inch of its life and concludes:
while Okrent seeks to evade the tough question of “Is The New York Times a Liberal Newspaper?” — or, more precisely, to answer the question “no” by answering it “yes” in a trivializing manner — his column actually answers the question perfectly. Okrent’s column is, itself, an example of it. I officially declare the Okrent experiment a failure.
