One for the subs

Killthecliche.com is, as the name suggests, a site that aims to tackle lazy journalists' overuse of stock phrases and silly jargon. Under the slogan "more data = better media", it tracks RSS feeds from six newspapers, counting up the relative popularity of a range of clichés, and compiling league tables of cliché crime, and of those responsible.

Only focusing on the US media at the moment - phew!

Putting in enough cliches to rise up the table will become a top office sport.
