My experience working with newspaper and TV reporters leads me to believe
that they can't recognize when they're on the wrong page, and will
sacrifice accuracy to catchy titles and text "simplified" to the point
of being ludicrously wrong -- at least when it comes to topics such as
computers, networking, and spam. I certainly don't expect any better of

Remember that study on people so incompetent that they can't recognize
their own incompetence? That's it, in spades.
