Memo To The Media: You Don't Have To Use "White House" Terminology

The job of any White House it to promote its agenda so they use clever phrases whenever possible. It doesn't mean that the media has to or should use them. Isn't that like Journalism, 101? I've heard right wingers complaining when the Media labels it an "escalation," which it is. My friend Mark asks the question: "When has the term "surge" ever been used to describe a military action before?"
