Recent references to “Big Oil” reminded me of a talk show where someone mentioned the theory that “the Jews” were behind the 9/11 terrorist attacks, and the comedian Susie Essman joked that she must have missed that meeting. Sadly, our political discourse is often misinformed by such sweeping generalizations, less these days about ethnic or religious groups than organizations or professions.
Not really anything else to add. Except: really, U.S. News?
