Serious Reporting, As Practiced by The Business Insider

Pay no attention to that Barron's cover story.

If you completely ignore the actual content, you can blithely dismiss the article as "just silliness" without the tiresome effort required to consider (much less rebut) all those annoying facts on the merits. The Business Insider would particularly like readers to ignore references to that well known purveyor of Republican dogma partisan hackery, the Congressional Budget Office.

More "silliness", doncha know?

Besides, Barron's isn't a serious publication anyway. You know, like, say... Business Insider.

Really. You don't want to read the Barron's article. You have been warned.

As Business Insider says, "Let's skip the actual contents of the argument for a moment." In fact, they pretty much skip the contents permanently and concentrate on making their closely reasoned 200-word argument that Barron's probably just wants to drum up volume with a catchy headline, so it can peddle stock tips to a bigger audience. And besides they're conservative poopy-heads.

"Shut up," they explained.

Wow, the comments over there are brutal.

Why did Borron's run that story?

Because they're greedy evil Teabaggers who are terrorizing Granny by holding the country hostage for the benefit of the Ayn Rand worshipping Chinese toy loving 1%.

Why can't they just put their partisanship behind them and be civil?
