Flack and Jack Shafer look
to the MSM today for help in unscrambling the subprime mess. (Weirdly, however,
Shafer asks journalists to nominate the best journalists on this beat,
rather than asking genuine housing experts.) In the broader media world, however,
by far the broadest, deepest, and smartest coverage of the subprme crisis and
housing meltdown comes not from any newspaper but rather from the blog Calculated
CR himself does an amazing job of aggregating housing-related news, and adding
some smart analysis as well; his sidekick Tanta is one of the best financial
writers in the world, and explains complex ideas with wit and great clarity.
The blog is a one-stop shop for all your housing-related news and analysis,
and must be mentioned in any round-up thereof. Now, if only they would
serve a full RSS feed…
Update: That was easy! Calculated Risk now has a full
RSS feed. Thanks!
