When You're Wrong, You're Wrong - Unless You're a Columnist

It is befuddling when columnists, whose job is to express opinions and interpret matters they have some background in for readers -- and who do so with evident inaccuracy for years on end -- are always unrelievedly mistaken but don't change their message or alter their analytical technique. The New York Times is a hotbed of such people, and the Times itself has been mistaken about every single serious issue in American life for decades. But the in-house champion of this genre of habitual error is now Tom Friedman.
