Jerry Springer
 n.— «The American soldiers themselves were aware of how inane many of their night raids were. Back in January 2004, the unit I was with jokingly called their raids “Jerry Springers.” Why? Because the intelligence was often based on unreliable sources who had agendas of their own. “Lots of times it turns out to be some guy who wants us to arrest another guy who’s interested in the same girl,” one soldier told me.» —“Making Enemies” by Michael Hirsh Newsweek July 26, 2006.
