Before we go to break, I want to make a quick point. We were having a discussion about the Chicago mayoral race. My friend Andy Shaw used the term 'in the crosshairs' in talking about the candidates. We're trying, we're trying to get away from that language. . .[Emphasis mine]
This is getting ridiculous. CNN seems to be treating certain words like landmines, uh, like a diseased whore. . . Wait. CNN seems to be treating certain words as if there are something not to be used. I don't want to say 'bad' because that's implying a negative. Not-Good. CNN wants to use good words and avoid not-good words.
It's Newspeak in the hear and now.
