That's not annoying. This is -- Here's how HuffPo opened its article:
James Cameron launched his science-fiction epic "Avatar" into a safe orbit as the costly film soared to No. 1 with $73 million domestically and $159.2 million overseas, for a $232.2 million worldwide total.
So why does Huffington Post's writer think "launched his science-fiction epic" "into safe orbit" doesn't signal laziness? I'm not being PC; it's not offensive; it is just lazy, and it's part of the reason people don't need to pay much attention to media these days. Apparently, not even to Huffington Post, which was supposed to represent the new media future.
Yes, I'm being overly sensitive. But would it hurt Huffington Post to employ a little smart editing?
