Katie Couric referring to middle America as the 'great unwashed' was just the tip of the iceberg. David Carr, a columnist for the New York Times apparently thinks of those of us who live in that vast area between New York City and California have 'low-sloped foreheads'. ABC now obviously feels that the viewers of Christiane Amanpour's 'This Week' are so ignorant that they feel that they have to throw a graphic on the screen with the definition of perspicacious when she used it during the show.
And we are supposed to trust these people?? They obviously feel that they are both so much better educated and smarter than we unwashed heathens that I'm surprised they just don't use cartoons to communicate with us. Their contempt for middle America used to be somewhat veiled but in the last two years, it seems that they have stopped even bothering to hide their delusions of superiority. And then they wonder why they are losing their market shares.... Biting the hand that feeds you is dumb, but they are too 'smart' to figure that out.
