The Orifice of Omaha, Part Deux
America’s greatest and most Teflon-coated venture socialist?
Penned by Jon Friedman at Market Watch, we have an open kimono parody of Buffett addressing a classroom of media manipulation strivers (George Soros and Media Matters for America have already figured much of the trailing snippet and are among the leading practitioners):
“The first thing to remember is that journalists are like children, and you must treat them as such. They are endlessly curious about rather mundane matters. And they are impatient. And they are often lazy. If you do the thinking for them, they’ll be secretly grateful.”
He pauses and wags his forefinger at the audience. “And,” he says solemnly, “they will reward you.”
Although the column does not connect the dots, the same applies for government bureaucrats (and perhaps for many beyond that categorization).
So now you perhaps better understand how the government and journalists are alike—sock that away for your LSATs, or better, for your life experiences.
