Krugman on Reading CBO Reports
This is a great post on basic analytical reading (this one specific to a CBO report) for the casual reader. Ignore the ideological axe he's grinding here, this shows the basic methodology you should be following when reading anything to show the proper scepticism. I'm sure many people know this already but methodology barely gets mentioned in the news so I'm a little bit overjoyed just to see it mentioned somewhere.
