Slang Gang Word of the Day

May 2: problem saturation
A process by which Mainstream Media addresses an issue incessantly, building up to a sense of pending doom. Of course, the problem, while worrisome, does not pose the grave threat they would like you to believe. Finally, MSM abandons coverage of the problem completely, moving on to another problem.

"Honey, why don't we hear any news about the drug cartels anymore?"

"That was last month's problem saturation, dear."

*I think we can all agree that the Swine flu is the current problem saturation*

Ha! Yes we can. They really bug me. And then I heard some news woman whining about all the journalists and news people losing their jobs and their needing a bailout and I just wanted to shoot her.
