Update: title changed to be more specific.

Folks, we are supposed to be the reality-based people.  Yet, once again, the #1 recommended diary on this site is a complete fantasy.

There is no evidence that Paul Krugman has been offered a job in the Obama administration, other than the claims of a diarist who says "reports surfaced" but is unable to point to such reports, and who has a track record of false claims.  Such an offer would represent a huge shift in Obama's economic policy, but we've seen no evidence of such a shift.

Please, when a diary makes an extraordinary claim, let's apply a bit of skepticism before promoting it to the top of the rec list. We damage the reputation of the site when we recommend false information.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
