Make up your minds, please.

(Canscene) — Not long after the beginning of the concern over a Swine Fever pandemic, media were urged to refer to it as H1N1, and to a certain extent, complied but soon slipped back into the former usage. In many cases and often in the same paragraph one now encounters H1N1 and Swine Fever in the same breath, as it were.

Will media  ever address the shabbiness of what I call “headline expediency.”  Persons not yet tried are still referred to as “accused killers” or “accused fraudsters” instead of “alleged” miscreants.
