Reader comment on: Leonhardt's Stock Call
Submitted by Harrison O'Toole (United States), Jan 20, 2012 19:54
There's simply no comparison between any economic or financial news reporter or, frankly, any reporting or column-writing at The New York Times and what your readers read at FOC.com.
Yale President Richard Levin -- under whose watch the Yale University Press refused to publish examples of the Danish cartoons in a book about the kerfuffle over the publication of Danish cartoons after consulting with such non-expert "experts" as Fareed Zakaria, another Yale alumnus, and under whose presidency the Yale center for the study of antiSemitism was shuttered, and under whose stewardship a once great university has declined by almost every signifiacnt yardstick -- can say whatever he wishes about David Leonhardt. It doesn't make it so. It makes it less likely to be so in my book. This isn't meant as an attack on David Leonhardt, either, but rather as a strong criticism of Richard Levin.
At the day of the day, I'd say it's Harvard 56-Yale zip.
