Infrastructure, a Review

By October 30, 2008Economy, Infrastructure

News coverage of Wednesday’s hearing of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee on infrastructure spending as economic stimulus, “Investing in Infrastructure: The Road to Recovery“:

The Post’s story, played on the front of the Business Section, shows the kind of editorial judgement and bias that make people dislike the mainstream media. Rather than cover the hearing’s news — generally pro-infrastructure investment — seek out the most strenous critics you can find and make that the news.

Pretty clearly you have an editor or two who think the idea of infrastructure as economic stimulus is crap, and they’re going to help the poor, befuddled reader reach that same conclusion. Thanks, guys! Couldn’t judge the arguments without your assistance.
