4 types of commentators

man sitting in chairI’ve been around for a while.

I’ve read a lot of commentary, listened to a lot of ‘experts’ on the radio and watched a lot of interviews on TV.

I’ve come to the conclusion that there are four types of commentators.

The informed.

These guys have done their research. They’ve checked their facts and they know their subject. These guys are the subject matter experts.

The uninformed.

These guys think they know what they’re talking about but they don’t. They don’t do any research, they make stuff up that sounds plausible. These guys are the bullshit artists.

The misinformed.

These guys have done some research but, sadly, they’ve mistaken the uniformed for the informed. These guys are the gullible parrots.

The intentionally misleading.

These guys have done their research. They’ve checked their facts but they have an agenda that does not include converting any of us into the informed. Their agenda is propagating misinformation. These guys are the spin doctors.

Thanks for dropping by, Peter.
