Scarborough: NYT Editor Calls Krugman’s Column ‘Their Biggest Nightmare Every Week’


Today on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, host Joe Scarborough said that an unnamed editor at the New York Times told him that “their biggest nightmare was [Krugman’s] column every week.”

Scarborough said this during a segment with Harvard historian Niall Ferguson who railed against Paul Krugman’s lack of “humility, honesty, and civility.”

“And there’s no accountability,” Ferguson said. “No one seems to edit that blog at the New York Times. And it’s time that somebody called him out. People are afraid of him. I’m not.”
