    So, so far we have had "so called" Islamic State and "so called ISIS" as well as the "so called" black box from the Air Asia disaster. Tonight on Look North (By 'ek, happen as not lik' as maybe) we had "so called" drunk tanks being set up in Hull.

    Anyone got any other examples where the BBC get all smug and pompous when it comes to calling something what normal people call things?

    There's always lots of cynical apostrophes too I notice. It's like the lazy version of 'so called'.

    And it would be remiss of me not to use one that is about the BBC and not by the BBC

    http://labourlist.org/2013/11/about-that-so-called-bbc-bias/

    Maybe that is where they got it from and are now taking the piss....
