Truthiness Hurts

Jason Kottke (www.kottke.org) just posted a piece from New York Magazine taking Michael Lewis (Liar's Poker/Moneyball) to task for piece he just penned for Vanity Fair about Iceland's economic woes. I've read both the New York piece - which actually critiques three pieces, includeing Lewis's piece. The writers seem to overstepped in the interest of adding some color; on the other hand, the critique isn't particularly heavy on the facts either.
