    If you eat, invest, and think according to what the ‘news’ advocates, you’ll end up nutritionally, financially, and morally bankrupt.

    Echoes of London coffee houses 

    I don’t think this needs spelling out, but Jonathan Swift, writing in the 18th century about coffee houses, could equally be writing in the 21st century about social networks.

    It is the folly of too many to mistake the echo of a London coffee-house for the voice of a kingdom.

    The problem, of course, is the hunger of lazy journalists, working for advertising-funded outlets, turning idle gossip and speculation into ‘news’.
