Well, it is not.
Of course, the anecdotal things he quotes from newspapers may be true,
but given the way newspaper editors work, these things are likely to be
blown out of proportions and sensationalized.
Age discrimination sure exists in some instances, but Norm Matloff makes
it sound as if this is the rule, without giving sound (and provable) evidence.
This is a bad approach, one that lobbying organizations take.
Because of this, everything he says in that paper is suspect.
