Hear! Hear!

The language is being (ughhh....) "decimated" by the press too, perhaps even mainly by the press.  But the advertising and PR businesses are doing their level best to destroy critical thinking, for example by promoting greenwash expressions such as "climate change", which leaves open the possibility that it might not be man made, over the more accurate "greenhouse effect".
