I often have a feeling that people are not actually reading my posts, or are just seizing on keywords and not getting the context. I never called anyone a Neanderthal. This is what I actually said:


'As far as your second point goes, I think it is a little harsh to suggest that sports-lovers and Stuff readers are such knuckle-dragging Neanderthal troglodytes that they would never, ever, for a moment, entertain any notion of actually being informed about something.'


Yes, I use colourful language but all I am saying is that it should not be assumed that sports lovers and Stuff readers have no interest in other, possibly more demanding subjects, just because they also happen to enjoy sports and they like reading Stuff. That is hardly the same thing.


In any case, I feel like I have said everything I have to say on this topic. Anything else is just repetition. If anyone has a question or comment about anything they think I have said, please check my postings here first. I'm sure you will find my response, but if you really do have a new point to make, feel free to make it and I will do my best to come up with a thoughtful and considered reply. If it is something I have already dealt with, though, I won't bother going into it again.

I thought this was interesting:


The American Media Is Corrupt, Biased, and Brainwashing Us: Michael Crichton (1993)


Worth watching the questions at the end too.
