Henry, I am fully aware of the difference between "disinterested" and "uninterested," thank you. I did pay attention in grade school.
My point: the "disinterested" reader is a myth; even TV doesn't aim for the undifferentiated general viewer. Why not admit that our readers have interests, positions, prejudices one way or the other just like we do?
You would have been better off making it a rhetorical question.
