Last week I published an article on payday loans, and the opposition to them coming from Chris Morran, a deputy editor at the Consumerist.Â I also made sure to copy him on the article so heâ€™d see it.
I am not surprised, but I am disappointed.Â Youâ€™d think someone who has enough time to write an article opposing payday loans would have enough time to defend his position.Â Â But Morran wonâ€™t defend it because, I think, he knows he canâ€™t.Â Â Heâ€™s stuck in a game of chicken where he canâ€™t move without eventually being run off the road.
So instead, he can only cluck in place.Â Cluck cluck cluck.Â Â Itâ€™s kind of a shame, because I love love love the Consumerist and it is so dead-on with so many of its articles.Â Heck, itâ€™s part of Consumer Reports.
So if Consumer Reports can get criticized when it rolls over vehicles to show allegedly unsafe they are, why doesnâ€™t Morran and the Consumerist get criticized when it rolls over payday loans without having the facts?
Whereâ€™s the oversight for these publications?
