Jamie- the latest blurb you put in Decode was startlingly elitist. level of education has no bearing on capacity to learn, or lie. some of the most creative and productive people in computer science have walked away before or during their education. for every Zakaria there is a Zuckerburg.
i think you’ve also directly contradicted a prior episodes well; your highlight of Maddow having a PhD From Oxford didn’t keep her from selling out for ratings w/r/t useless Trump tax returns, did it?
finally, you seem to be placing this emphasis on education as if these people are actually doing their work alone in a vacuum. Isn’t it far more likely these folks are in front of the camera because they are willing to say the things they are told to and/or because they are handsome?
