    Accusing someone of insolvency -- even when they're not a Nobel Prize economist and prominent columnist for the NY Times, for whom this could be career-ending -- used to be considered "libel per se," just like accusing a woman of unchastity. Given his position, it's even more egregious.

    I hope he does make a claim against the people who published it as a serious "news" story (but not the satire sites, which are entitled because like the Onion they are known by most people to be satire).
