There's a whole slew of words that the media has brought into popular usage, I can't think of that many right now, but together I'm sure we can. You may notice that these words were seldom, if not ever used, until the "paparazzi" got ahold of them. Then they're used constantly, redundantly, wrongly. Extra credit if you can remember the news event that spawned the usually stupid term.

Some examples:

  • Enemy Combatant
  • Embedded Reporter
  • Ground Zero

"Paparazzi" was popularized because of Princess Di's death. I remember never hearing that term until that event.

Somehow I expected more of a response. I have been thinking of this stuph for years. I know there's many more dumb terms they made up out there.
