This Week’s Quote: “My experience is that journalists report on the nearest-cliché algorithm, which is extremely uninformative because there aren’t many clichés, the truth is often quite distant from any cliché, and the only thing you can infer about the actual event was that this was the closest cliché….It is simply not possible to appreciate the sheer awfulness of mainstream media reporting until someone has actually reported on you. It is so much worse than you think.” —Eliezer Yudkowsky
