Does reading The Economist make you dull?

Quote of the Day-

Reading the same papers and magazines as everyone else around you is not likely to make you an interesting dinner guest, let alone alter your consciousness. In my case, a subscription to the Times Literary Supplement, courtesy of my father-in-law, made me more interesting to sit beside than someone whose diet was limited to Time, Newsweek, or the Economist- or Nature for that matter.

- James Watson, Avoid Boring People, p.311
