And yet again the word 'geek' makes its mandatory appearance
The young sci-fi watching lady in the article feels she may have been slightly misquoted...
Well, yes, her quotes were reduced, but pixeldiva 'corrects' several things which were not attributed to her, unless the Torygraph have rewritten the article again.
I said a bunch of other stuff too; but out of it all the journalist wrenched the bits she wanted and left the rest behind.Umm, yes, well. That's what journalists do. And while one is entitled to complain if they completely change the sense of what one says (which, God knows, happens often enough), trimming stuff down to terse and punchy snippets is simply them doing their jobs.One can only even complain about that if one never reads newspapers at all. If one doesn't want it happening to one's pellucid prose, one shouldn't speak to journalists at all, ever.(Which, by the way, is a perfectly rational policy. Very few people give really good soundbite, and it's often smart to know better than to try.)
