Clip On Journalism

I’ve noticed over the last several years two recurring words in the word stream spewing from the world’s press machine: crisis and scandal (both frequently misapplied to that which they are describing).

Those words have become the ultimately convenient journalistic artifice: all that is needed is a pop in/pop out word following “scandal” or “crisis”  and it is possible to have a whole new “thing” with which to whip the populace into a frenzy.
