Reporters and History: Never the Twain Shall Meet

I wish I had lots of pithy comments to make about this, but the only thing I can honestly say is, reporters are morons. Their complete disconnect from reality, their inability to look any further back in time than 1968 and their total lack of understanding of matters historical, or worse, military history, make them sound like total simpletons. That said, they do fit in with mainstream America in this complete lack of reference. I love asking people at work, when did the civil war take place? Let's put it this way, my eight year olds get the answer right (not all the time) more often than my co-workers do.
