This SO hits the nail on the head...
Very similar to the media in the states.., easy to sit back and "armchair quarterback" situations/events. CjI like that - wouldn't have a clue who Lord Sugar (or SO) is though.
Change the names of the journalists and media organisations and that could also ring very true in Australia.
Many "high level" journos are nothing but pathetic, negative, nit-picking whingers.
Hmmm, you don’t have to be uneducated to have a lack of critical thinking. I dunno about your system over there, but I have long been of the opinion that our education system actually discourages critical thinking. Something that has become MUCH worse with the advent of modern technology. Don’t know something? Google. Gotta write and essay? Copy paste. This does not help to train thinking.It's not that people believe them so much as they just don't care. We're talking about uneducated folks who
never heard of the concept of critical thinking.
