Back To The Future: Dean Baker On The Mortgage Crisis
Over the last few years In These Times has consistently published stories that are later picked up by other independent outlets and the mainstream media, (see our cover story, "Showdown" about the Udall cousins who are currently fighting for seats in the Senate; now look at this Times article published 4 months later). While our writers cover what's going on right now in the world and what it portends, the MSM waits months, sometimes years, to catch up. Our subscribers and regular readers get the most important, relevant news first. It's why independent media is so invaluable to the health of our nation and the state of our democracy. Can you imagine if the nation had heeded Baker back in '03?
