“A great point,” Hannity declared. “And from now on, I'm going to call it the government option, because that's what it is.”
Bill Sammon, a Fox News vice president and Washington managing editor, sent the staff a memo.
“Please use the term ‘government-run health insurance,’ or, when brevity is a concern, ‘government option,’ whenever possible,” the memo said.

News of the Weird Posted: 3 years ago by keroberos32
For some readers, News of the Weird is a light diversion from the serious reporting of the week. For others, though, it's a weekly chronicle of the alarming decline of civilization. Or a therapeutic personal benchmark (for reassurance that the problem is other people, not you). Or, for the few who actually wind up in News of the Weird, a monument to lives interestingly lived.
I hope it's not a dupe, I searched and could not find it
