This is a terrible argument. It would be like me saying that I’ve found that the fresh-out-of-school engineering major, who had not done any graduate work in the field, mistook torque for tension, or hardness and ductility of a material in a report.

Writers for media publications are not experts in any liberal arts, the same way that undergrads from an engineering program are not experts in theirs. This anecdotal argument doesn’t prove anything. The analogy is poor.
