Ignorance at NPR

From the Media Research Center, this tidbit from an article in USA Today about Daniel Schorr of National Public Radio.
Daniel Schorr is used to producers popping into his Washington, D.C., office at National Public Radio to ask, on deadline: Which war came first, Korea or Vietnam? (Answer: Korea.)

But when one asked, “You covered the Spanish-American War, didn’t you?” Schorr couldn’t help but respond, matter-of-factly: “That was 1898.”

“Oh, sorry, of course,” the younger man said, excusing himself.
