On CNN, John King ritually distances himself from the phrase "in the crosshairs":
Before we go to break, I want to make a quick point. We were having a discussion about the Chicago mayoral race. My friend Andy Shaw used the term 'in the crosshairs' in talking about the candidates. We're trying, we're trying to get away from that language. Andy is a good friend, he's covered politics for a long time, but we're trying to get away from that kind of language.
CNN, of course, featured a show called Crossfire for more than 20 years. Can they really not see how utterly ridiculous this is?
