By the way, I'm aware of the irony of appearing on TV in order to decry it, so don't bother pointing it out.*

This is from an actual column in The Telegraph's "Home Hunter" section. It's written by David Griffin:
Don't believe everything you read in the newspaper. If I wanted to know whether my own unique financial situation was conducive to proposed mortgage financing, I would not call up a newspaper reporter and ask him or her anything about it. Just because they have the ability to type does not mean they are an expert on any particular subject. Just because it gets printed does not mean that it is true.
Irony is really much funnier when people realize they're being ironic.

I was going to include "...including anything that I write here", but I forgot. Sorry. -DG
