When you read about anything you know about in the newspaper, it’s always wrong.
Yes – even when you’ve written it yourself.
Brilliant – and spot on.
And that reminds me of a couple of related – but considerably less pithy – posts I wrote a while ago, one on systemic distortion and another asserting the truism that history is written by those who write history.
Thanks, Stefan. Writing may be harder than reading, but both are hard to do well. Recently I was mentally scoffing at some rather sketchy material on a well known public sector website. Glancing back at my own writing on the topic, I saw I’d made one or two similar elisions myself. Call me rueful.
I enjoyed your both your above posts. But it’s this earlier piece which hit a nerve.
