Tucker's probably not going to win this argument. Tucker Carlson used his Fox News show to belittle incoming First Lady Jill Biden over her use of "doctor" for her PhD in education. The Fox News host called her "borderline illiterate." I don't know, when I went to college we used to call professors who had PhD's in education "doctor", so what's changed? It's part of an ongoing negative trend. Instead of attacking the message, you attack the messenger.
Tucker made three pretty good points. First, insisting that other people call you Doctor when you have an Ed.D is pretentious, especially when you’re not in an academic environment and you’re not even in a job that requires or utilizes that degree. Second, Ms. Biden’s dissertation is of dubious quality and tends to belie her asserted credentials. And third, the fact that she was able to skate through the program despite her poor performance on her dissertation is symptomatic of the abysmal state of our country’s educational system.
