Isn't it funny, that all these journos keep repeating that "all human knowledge" crap? Sometimes I wonder if it's tattooed on Jimbo's penis. (So the journalists can see it when they, well.....)
When they blow him? Heck, you can say it. I don't think I've yet to read a live interview of Jimbo where the journalist didn't do a fluff-and-buff, followed by a polish.
I don't really know why that is. My best guess is that:
1) Journalism has been corrupted by the Larry King school of "softball interviewing," due to the fact that journalists are lazy and underpaid and really cannot afford to do anything else.
2) Jouralists are not intelligent enough not to confuse the messenger with the message, and almost all of them therefore, during the period required for a soft interview, are unable to disenthrall themselves from the idea that a man who supposedly started an encyclopedia of all human knowledge, may not actually be
a human encyclopedia himself, ala Isaac Asimov. That he may, in fact, not really know much more about the world than the average journalist. And that he isn't any smarter. And (this part is really horrible) is of no better moral character than the average journalist, either.
