Impartially uninterested?

“Disinterested” has been misused so often that some writers forget its real meaning. “Disinterested” is an adjective that means “impartial.” A judge should show disinterest. A referee should be a disinterested observer.

In this case, the writer meant “uninterested.” Journalists may not show much interest in marketing and promotion, but rarely are they impartial toward them.
