Disinterest isn't synonymous with neutrality. It's synonymous with apathy. The actual word for what you're talking about is objectivity - which would be a good thing - but that's not what's in play here.

It shows apathy/disinterest when you don't do something as basic as reading the guys bio to check on his resume' or, at the very least, checking how you spell his name.


Apathy and disinterest are not the same thing. Disinterest is neutrality.

Sorry for being pedantic, but that is a common mistake that gets under my skin.
At least we both agree that Pat Y is not an objective reporter when it comes to the Panthers.
