3rd-rate journos fail to grasp comment -- again!
Seems exactly the same as the Gore non-quote: McCain's staffer said something about innovation & the government's hand in fostering it & a poor excuse for a journalist claims that a politician is big-noting himself as an inventor, then another 3rd-rate journo regurgitates the big-noting claim without a facts check. Then again, i'm not sure that the journalists are to blame in that the subsequent comments from the McCain camp would indicate that they to cannot separate a general comment about the government's hand in fostering innovation & a claim that said poli is a the inventor of some-such. Then again, maybe the subsequent comments are a response to the reportage, rather than to the actual meaning of the original comment. Wouldn't it be nice if editors would take the blue pencil to basic comprehension errors?
