Atrios Revealed

Via Kevin Drum, I see that the psedononymous “Atrios” of the popular lefty bog Eschaton has finally revealed that he is Duncan Black, an economist now a Senior Fellow at Media Matters for America. The need for a leftist economist to hide his identity remains unclear, however.

Update: Rob Tagorda reacts and reminds us why he dropped his old pseduonym last August.

  1. Steven says:

    Maybe because he writes like an angry college student. Certainly the stuff he puts out doesn’t typically read like anyone who would have the title “Senior Fellow” attached to it.

    Although I will say that “Duncan Black” is a pretty cool name.

  2. He will always be “Hatrios” to me…..
