Timothy Noah catches Tom Friedman being inconsistent. Really inconsistent. But Tom's I-voted-against-it-before-I-voted-for-it approach to subscription fees really isn't the top attention-grabber in the quotes Noah flags. Rather, take a look at the guy's thinking. Not only does it veer wildly from principle to self-interest, but it's all intuition, all hunches, all unsupported. He doesn't offer arguments or try and reconcile his contradictions, he just kinda...speaks. How did this guy get famous?
