Addendum to Post on Reporters Below

Previously, I commented that reporters are rather bad at understanding things in writing (including their own newspapers), preferring to interview an ignoramus than read a page from an expert. As it turns out, that is consistent with their own view of their profession: it requires no expertise, no experience, no knowledge, though such things are a "plus."

Now I'm looking to get rid of the delusion that reportage requires a college education, or a grad school of its own: by its own expectations, nothing of the sort is needed. A good high school education should do it.
