Mr. Tom Brady, meet Mr. William of Ockham
Tom Brady ripped ESPN yesterday, saying that the network's coverage of the Patriots' spying controversy is manufactured controversy. Can't we just keep news of our organization's illegal spying on opposing teams in the past, Brady asks? He alleges the typical media sensationalism.
Let's hear from Mr. Brady directly:
To rebut these comments, we've resuscitated William of Ockham, the 14th century Franciscan friar whose principle, "Occam's razor," states that the simplest explanation for a phenomenon is the most likely true explanation.
What say you, sir?
Mr. Ockham, you've been most helpful. Mr. Brady, please go back to impregnating models and leave the media criticism to Ben Bagdikian.
