Here in Amerika, we don't get much information from the press, yet news outlets still have to fill out their alloted space and time, so they tend to fill the news void with fluff and such.

And that this same language has now created an actual demand for people to learn and speak it outside of this television program? The implications are rather unsettling I think.
