Default Chess in the American press

Chess HQ has always loved to see chess in the national press. Come
to think of it, over the past ten years or so the only chess matters I
can recall in the national press have been Kasparov when he's involved
with the computer, Sherzer with the young girl, and Fischer's troubles
in Japan. I can't recall much else of substance. Seems like chess is
low on the priority of news items.

When was the last time you read a news story about Mensa?

Of course it is low priority. Chess is too abstract for most people to
understand; chess is associated with being "smart." And being smart in
American culture is seen as weird, especially when those smarts are not
being used to worship at the Almighty temple of the dollar and its
procurement.

So all you will ever get on chess in the media is oddball stuff. Ever.
