NPR: "Is The Hurricane The Last Straw For The Economy?"

On NPR's Morning Edition today, co-anchor Renee Montagne was interviewing David Wessel of the Wall Street Journal on the hurricane's effects on the national economy. But she was a little over the top in her tone with her first question: "Is the hurricane the last straw for the economy?" (Hear it here.)Last straw? Economic growth is strong, unemployment is low, and the liberal media is still pretending that Bush is presiding over the Great Depression. Unbelievable. Listening to NPR can really ruin a commute.
