Planes in trouble become staple of US cable TV

Not again! People! Media is not a verb!

"We live such a mediated existence anyway, it's refreshing to experience an event unmediated, especially if you don't have to leave your house,' McBride said."

"Mediate" is not derived from "media."
"Mediate" means "to intervene." It is derived from the latin "mediatus," which means 'placed in the middle.'
"Media," which is the plural of "medium," is derived from Latin "medius," which also gave us the "mediatus" root for mediate. Fun!

Also, I think that the word you were looking for in an earlier post was "prognathous."

Saw your post on /. today, thought it was funny. Happy new year!
