Episode Details

Why do we continue to trust the media even after they’ve been proven wrong so frequently? Michael Crichton called it “Gell-Mann Amnesia.”

“In short: when we actually possess expertise in the subject under examination, we almost invariably find media representations of that subject are lacking at best and outright lies at worst,” summarizes James Corbett. “But, for some reason, once we turn the page or flip the channel, we go right back to believing that the other journalists and authors out there actually know what they’re talking about.”
