"To a philosopher all news, as it is called, is gossip, and they who edit and read it are old women over their tea."
Henry David Thoreau

And to a news reporter, all philosophy, as it is called, is armchair platitudes, and its purveyors and admirers are old men over their cigars.

"Old women" = silly, weak, useless, vain people who worry over trifles. That stereotype has been around forever, and I hereby declare it dead.
