Nassim Taleb on journalists

Most journalists do not take things too seriously: After all this business of journalism is about pure entertainment not search for truth, particularly when it comes to radio and television. The trick is to stay away from those who do not seem to know that they are just entertainers (like George Will... ) and actually believe that they are thinkers.

~ Nassim Taleb, Fooled by Randomness, 2nd Edition, p. xxvii
