I know I’m talking to a very small segment of the media; however, can we PLEASE STOP calling every scandal of the U.S. government “Something-GATE”?

Watergate – minor league compared to everything that has occurred since – was 39 years ago! Most readers don’t even know what “-gate” means, or why it is used … just us old guys and the journalistic perpetrators who are not original enough to come up with a new term.
