From an MSNBC handwringer about some trailerpark-special TV craptacular called “Beer Games” :

“Glorifying beer drinking is just another example of irresponsible marketing and promotion of beer consummation,” says George A. Hacker, director of the Alcohol Project at the Center for Science in the Public Interest in Washington, D.C.

You reckon he meant to say that?
From the same article :

If you are kid in a classroom with 10 other children and need the teacher’s attention you raised your hand,” says Prof. Robert Thompson, director for the Center for the Study of Popular Television at Syracuse University. “But if you are in the classroom with 500 other children you may have to jump up on the table, drop your pants and say a naughty word.”

Does anyone edit these things? Who are these halfwits they’re dredging up for quotes? What the hell is happening out there? Thank crikey I’m not a journalist, say I.
