Well, yes.. it isn't degradation, its gradation. Definitely a wrong quote. Or, perhaps, a more wrong quote.

Wow. You added a "de" and missed a sentence. tv fanatic? hardly. grammar and syntax fanatic? not a chance. "Of course it is! It's a little wrong to say a tomato is a vegetable. It's very wrong to say it's a suspension bridge."

I don't suppose "wrong", as a state, is subject to degradation either though. Incorrect quote, but possibly still a valid point?

It's "wrong is an absolute state and is not subject to gradation," not "degradation." "Degradation" is the state of losing whatever it is that makes something strong; "gradation" is an increase in one aspect or another, neither good nor bad. "Good" grades to "better"; "better" grades to "best"; "bad" grades to "worse"; "worse" grades to "worst." "Silly" grades to "sillier," "tolerant" grades to "more tolerant," etc.
