Deliberately uninformed

Seth's Blog: Deliberately uninformed, relentlessly so [a rant]:
"Many people in the United States purchase one or fewer books every year.

Many of those people have seen every single episode of American Idol. There is clearly a correlation here.

Access to knowledge, for the first time in history, is largely unimpeded for the middle class. Without effort or expense, it's possible to become informed if you choose. For less than your cable TV bill, you can buy and read an important book every week.

Or you can watch TV."

  1. Absolutely true, but these uninformed folks will listen to and believe quack nonsense put out there by movie stars and are convinced that they "are" well-informed.
