The Washington Post Writes a Dumbass Article About Modular Housing

Just when you think that maybe, just maybe, major media writers were actually beginning to understand the benefits of modular housing, another uninformed writer for a major newspaper goes off the reservation and confuses modular with a double wide trailer.

The entire article is about double wide HUD homes. The picture accompanying the article though is a "real" modular home being set in 2012.  Probably didn’t show a double wide picture because it would LOOK like a double wide.

The only thing missing from this article is RESEARCH. It would only have taken the two people credited with writing the article a couple of Google searches to learn that they don’t know Jack about the modular housing industry.

Lighten up Coach. What did you expect from the Washington Post? They report about politics so much that distorting the truth is second nature to them.

I was unable to leave a comment on Washington Post article but did go to the author's blog and wrote to her about the issues of the title/picture not reflecting what she wrote about and that if she didn't understand the difference to make a few calls to people who know. I also pointed out the major differences in the two products.
