has arrived. Despite New Blogger being a piece of crap(and the idiots behind it should be clubbed).
“Briefly stated, the
Gell-Mann Amnesia effect is as follows. You open the newspaper to an
article on some subject you know well. In Murray's case, physics. In
mine, show business. You read the article and see the journalist has
absolutely no understanding of either the facts or the issues. Often, the
article is so wrong it actually presents the story backward—reversing
cause and effect. I call these the "wet streets cause rain" stories.
Paper's full of them.
In any case, you read with exasperation or amusement the multiple errors in a story, and then turn the page to national or international affairs, and read as if the rest of the newspaper was somehow more accurate about Palestine than the baloney you just read. You turn the page, and forget what you know.”
Now throw in the proviso that an awful lot of people, having caught so many errors or- in some cases- flat-out lies, stop believing the media about ANYTHING. Which is a real problem.
should receive suitable approbation. A good beating would be a start.
