Are financial journalists real experts?

Obviously most of them don’t know what they are talking about, accoring to Free Money Finance.

This is actually confirmed by Karen Blumenthal, the author of Grande Expectation: a year in the life of Starbucks stock. She said (before wrote the book), she has been financial journalist for more than 20 years, but she did not know what is stock split, what is earning, what is shareholder meeting etc.

I read half of the book, and I’ve learned quite a bit from Karen’s learning experience :-)
