There was a deal of self-satisfaction in the article, but some interesting points.

'curatorial' is a yucky word though -- a bit like 'lavatorial'

Or "artisanal", I always think.

It seemed to me that there was a decent case made, but that it comes very close to mistaking correlation for causation, as usual, or put more simply, joining up dots which were independent.

This applies to all sorts of complex, long running stories. The legality of the Iraq war, say, or any number of corporate scandals. The conventional media reports on every development in a way that suggests a breakthrough, no breakthrough comes, rinse and repeat, in due course people lose interest.

Its an excellent way for the great and the good to avoid responsibility for their corrupt behaviours.

"Artisanal" - indicating a work class task performed by a former public school boy or girl.

The article makes a pretty obvious point, long running, complex stories require in depth assessments. Thankfully the author of the article is also the author of a book on the subject in hand.
