The latest fumble by the Fourth Estate in its attempt to write about public employee pensions can be found in Wednesday’s Washington Post. There are a lot of things wrong with the story. It’s terribly one-sided. It includes too few voices from labor. But one of the biggest problems with story is that the reporter failed to adequately address that cities and states find themselves in hot water because they took pension payment holidays. In so many instances, cities and states are responsible for the pension problems they face because of the payment holidays, but the reporter devotes just one sentence to that fact.
