    Default Insane Media

    I hope this does not come across as moronic, but there seems to be this horrid trend {(trend? If starting <1970 constitutes a trend)} wherein acquiescence to the media immediately negates one's IQ to at least 20 pts of the prior. Whenever Alex begins to drive a valid point home, there is some journalist that reverts it and points sensationalism towards any contrived rumor that is the de jour of the week. It’s truly enlightening to watch some of the unedited interviews. Especially for someone as uninitiated as I am…a person comes out of it thinking the interviewee is degrees smarter than the interviewer. I used to think that Eddie was only smart in music, yet I have learned that he is nearly as bright linguistically as his brother (Alex). Ya won’t see that in any major media edit, however.

    I’m rambling…

    Basically this dude is saying the press makes people look dumber than they sometimes are. That a musician cant have inteleect and that often the person interviewed is smarter than the person doin the interviewing. Ed being a case in question.

    After watching the interview on MTV Headbangers ball back in 95, Ed certainly gave the impression that he has a high intellect.


    Common sense???? well thats another issue!
