Every television news or radio station I tuned into seemed to be using the same words and terms, such as: canary in the coal mine, cancel culture, conflate, contextualize, deflect, deep state conspiracy theory, pivot, political calculus, messaging, racial reckoning, structural racism, weaponize, white privilege, woke, and so on. I had to figure them out and learn them like a new language. Some were easy but others needed much more effort! Being a fairly intelligent person, as well as a teacher, I used my college background in English, economics, political science, plus two years of law school. Combined with my love for learning, I listened actively to the news, taking notes, and consulting Google regularly whenever I had doubts or needed information. I am now able to understand the evening news! Hence, I came up with the idea for this book and named it An MSN, Fox News, And CNN Education: Words and Terms for the Educated and Uneducated used by Cooper, Cuomo, D. Lemon, and More. I decided to compile a list that would help any listener who seeks self-improvement and who wants to learn to use these words, terms, and sayings in context.
