KINGSTON, NY 14 July 2010 — Regardless of topic, not a day goes by without a headline story that uses language that confuses, camouflages, misrepresents, downplays, plays up or otherwise manipulates the subject to support an unspoken agenda.

To stay on-trend it is essential to recognize the “weasel words.”  These may take the form of a single word, phrase, or a seemingly innocent descriptive paragraph.  It is never obvious, nor does it look like propaganda.

I stumbled across an interesting article a few days ago. Written by Kartik Athreya, of the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond, the article is titled "Economics is Hard. Don't Let Bloggers Tell You Otherwise."

The abstract of the paper declares,

In this essay, I argue that neither non-economist bloggers, nor economists who portray economics — especially macroeconomic policy — as a simple enterprise with clear conclusions, are likely to contibute [sic] any insight to discussion of economics and, as a result, should be ignored by an open-minded lay public.
