I’ve talked here before about news items that talk about incredibly obvious subjects. Here’s another example. The headline reads ….
The author points out that retirees on fixed incomes don’t have a, you know, income, in order to take care of debts. If they start to gamble away their nest egg they could be in real trouble.
I’m glad they cleared that up for me. Had no idea.
I think this is proof that journalists might not be stupid, they just operate under the assumption that we are. That’s why they so often come off sounding stupid themselves as they try and cater to the imagined intelligence of their customers.
