Why I've lost respect for the Economist

The one news source I used to respect was the Economist. It's well written - and , if you make allowances for their biases, a reliable source of news, which covered the entire globe . I believed they did their research thoroughly , and could be trusted.

However, a recent article by Schumpeter has caused me to rethink my views. In this article, he talks about the Kahn academy, when he actually means the Khan academy. Now it's true that sexcapades are more interesting that academics, but it's hard to forgive a newspaper , which prides itself on accuracy, when they prove to be so clueless about a modern internet success story which is helping to change the way we teach and learn.
