I so long for the day when reporters and journalists will cease attaching the suffix "-gate" to every scandal.

It simply looks like laziness and unoriginality on the part of the media and its overuse has made the term unimpactful.
Urgutha, it's been so long now that I'll bet many of them don't even know where it originally came from.
"-gate" is shorthand for "no daily funds monthslong investigations any more so please accept this memorial hype."
Sorry, guys. I wanted to call it "WikiLeaks DocuDump." But "-gate" was already in wide circulation.
That's okay - sometimes you have to go with the obvious when you're copying and pasting fast.

Please wait...
