It can be amusing to read the business section of newspapers, because corporate coverage tends to be carefully couched in phrases that either obfuscate what's really going on or are outright Orwellian. For example, a recent New York Times article on rising airline fares and fees did a rhetorical tiptoe around the core issue. The fact is that practically all airlines have jacked up the price of flying--and in unison! In the real world, there's a word for this: collusion. But the Times put a positive glow on the phenomenon, attributing the industry-wide increases to "a remarkable discipline shown by the airlines."
