A super smart friend of mine always rolls his eyes whenever I try to talk about someone being not so knowledgeable, so I'll just let Mollie Hemingway do it this time. She generalizes a bit, but she primarily targets a few high profile liberal writers. Read it at Media Ignorance Is Becoming A Serious Problem.
One target was Zach Carter, The Huffington Post‘s senior political economy reporter. Here's Hemingway:
I don’t mean to pick on Carter, who was a good sport. If anything, I give him credit for sticking through the entire interview [with Hugh Hewitt]. But it speaks to a larger problem we face with our media, which is that they frequently are not well read and, more importantly, they do not realize it. ...
Remember how President Reagan once quipped, “The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they are ignorant, but that they know so much that isn’t so”? Yeah, well, I think the ignorance may be turning into a problem.
Yes it is. The problem really shows when the electorate reflects that same ignorance.
