Why Do You Do That

My conclusion after watching political journalism for so many years is that some of them are, actually, as stupid as they seem to be, but some are merely pretending to be that stupid, which makes them dishonest.

Stupidity and dishonesty in every profession, but dishonesty is a bit of a problem in a profession which brands itself as engaged in fearless truth telling.

(Of course there is good journalism, but it isn't usually the 'politics beat,' the day to day bullshit beat).
