    As a person who has spent 10+ years talking with the press and seeing
    how the press reports, the amount of misinformation is staggering. For
    me what is most frustrating is how the press will take the most
    sensational things that are said, ignoring the larger context of what is
    being communicated. This obsession with soundbites is to understanding
    what a porno movie is to human emotions, desires, and dreams. Worse,
    every other reporter thinks that this is good, not bad journalism, and
    the result is that there is no standard of quality, only mediocrity.
