Ten Journalists in Ten Days: Lou Dubose
The seventh journalist in my Ten Journalists in Ten Days series is editor of The Washington Spectator, Lou Dubose. I had to include Dubose because he just wrote an outstanding, meticulously researched piece exposing how Texas Governor and Republican presidential hopeful, Rick Perry knowingly created a budget deficit in his state. Unbelievably, Perry took $17 billion in stimulus money to help fix his state’s budget hole while the whole time he railed against the President’s stimulus program publicly. Here Dubose talks with Tulane Professor, Melissa Harris-Perry about decoding what Perry really means when he talks about Social Security, a balanced budget and job creation.
