As an Op-Ed columnist, Mr. Krugman clearly has the freedom to call out what he thinks is a lie. My question for readers is: should news reporters do the same?

YES!

It seems completely bizarre that Arthur Brisbane has to ask this question but I see this constantly at work. It’s especially prevalent during election campaigns when it’s a constant barrage of reporting on what he said and what she said with zero verification on whether there’s any truth whatsoever in those words.
