Had I read this article as a young person I would have been more likely to attend a Jensen lecture as otherwise. Not because I had realistic beliefs about HBD at that age, I didn't. But, because I was very attuned to the use of hyperbole in reporting (especially when the hyperbole was unaccompanied by fact) and I would have inferred, correctly, that the author was seeking to hide something (Jensen's work). Such ham handed treatments were a challenge to seek something out. Today's Lefties are cleverer, they simply ignore the offending academic.
