Say what you will about old Arafat, he was a reliable producer of news, and that meant he'd show up every semester on a J110 weekly news quiz, and without fail, at least one rising star of journalism per term would seize the chance to identify him as "Israeli president." That's one reason we have J-school. It's a chance to work out your moments of sublime cluelessness (well, some of them*) before you take your act on the road.

A step, apparently, that you get to bypass when you sign on at the Fair 'n' Balanced Network! Not only can you skip the pesky lie/lay stuff, you can move the Fractious Near East a continent to the south!
