The views expressed by Carl Bernstein (particularly in reference to his 1992 article, “The Idiot Culture” and 2007 interview revisiting the topic) and others in this episode do not necessarily represent the views of the show or represent an endorsement by the show or its author. Simon Pegg has recently expressed somewhat similar ideas about science fiction and popular culture as once engaging the issues of the day instead of being purely escapist entertainment. Worth discussing another time.
