This morning, a formerly U.S. competitor won the gold medal in skeet shooting.  I say “formerly,” because the MSNBC commentator identified the anthem that was played as that of the “United States in America.”

The media are getting way too powerful.  It’s one this to be saying stupid things (MSNBC specialty for years now), but it’s quite another to be creating new countries on the fly.
