Nobel Prize-winning economist and New York Times columnist Paul Krugman is known for his argumentative and combative columns. His fierce style even prompted a televised debate with host Joe Scarborough over the debt.
On Thursday’s Morning Joe, Scarborough said the Gray Lady struggles with the economist’s opinions, too.
“I won’t tell you which editor it was, but one of the public editors at the New York Times told me off the record after my debate that their biggest nightmare was his column every week,” Scarborough said.
“There’s no accountability, no one seems to edit that blog on the New York Times and it’s time someone called him out,” said historian Niall Ferguson, who has written a series of articles criticizing Krugman for what he called “hubris.”
Correction: A previous version of this story incorrectly described as Paul Krugman as a Pulitzer-Prize-winning economist. He is a Nobel Prize-winning economist.
