Interessante depoimento encontrado em um site pelo Mark Thoma do Economist´s View:

I once heard from a Russian reporter about her early days on the job. “Whenever we read an article about the health dangers of butter, we would immediately run out and buy as much butter as we could find,” she told me. “We knew it meant there was about to be a butter shortage.” In other words, Russians looked only for the agenda, the motivation behind the assertion. The actual truth was irrelevant.

O Thoma diz que anda se comportando assim também _ buscando sempre as motivações atrás das aparências _ e se pergunta se está ficando paranóico ou realista.  O que vocês acham?
