Here's a wonderful example of media taking things out of context:

New Leaders Warn Pensive French of the Drawbacks of Thinking Too Much

In the country of the Enlightenment, President Nicolas
Sarkozy's government advocates hard work, not musing.

The article itself does have a more complete picture but entirely too many people will see a headline and not read very much (if any) of the actual article itself.  In this case what he's saying is basically something on the order of.  "Lets not sit and think when it's time to get up and start working."

The guy is talking about the problems inherent in allowing oneself to get trapped in the situation doing nothing but over analysing everything and not getting up to actually get something accomplished.

I am not a hamster, this headline is a good example of NYTimes editors not thinking enough... OR proofreading what they've written and examined what it sounds like.

Thinking something to death is a problem but so is not thinking something through at all.
