RICHARD FERNANDEZ: “When Tom Brokaw denounced the dumbing-down of White House Correspondent’s dinner he was unintentionally talking about one of the underlying reasons for the FBI’s inability to see the threat of the Tsarnaev brothers, even when it was pointed out to them. . . . The process which has dumbed down the White House Correspondent’s dinner and blinded the FBI is essentially the same: that of removing information from the system in order to make it predictable, manageable and nonthreatening. To make it consistent with the internal ideology of the human institution. Institutions do not always seek to find the truth. More often than not they seek to find the approved solution.”
