What Fiscal Cliff

When one person you’re the phrase Fiscal Cliff it traveled the media like wildfire. Some reporters can’t use it enough like in every sentence at least once. The worry is that the middle class will stop spending after January first and won’t buy a lot of junk for Christmas because they are worried about “The Fiscal Cliff” an over rated catch phrase. Catch phrases come and go. Remember 9/11 and “Connect the Dots?” What about the first gulf war and “Hunker Down?” Everyone was “Hunkering in place” waiting for the next catch phrase to repeat. The latest word or phrase is “Superstorm Sandy.” If you use a spell checker “Superstorm” isn’t in there. I thought the words would have been hyphenated as “Super-Storm” but everyone followed the leader and made it one word, a new word. It is good the climate  change is in the media but the way it’s being used is like filler to a program. The people doing the reporting couldn’t care less what they are reporting about they are just reading copy. Copy, a page or pages of text written by a writer for a person to read on camera or in front of a microphone which is transmitted to the masses.
