Overcoming

Can we please get together some kind of summit for journalists that is just WHAT ARE WORDS and HOW DO WE FUNCTION THEM?

Things that could have been said instead of “overcoming,” in no particular order:

Breaking (most accurate would be “in an attempt to break”).

Circumventing (still garbage, but factual).

Defying.

Challenging (milquetoasty enough for mainstream pubs which hate definitive language).

SINCE APPARENTLY NOBODY’S HEARD OF.

Violating.

Attempting to violate.

Ignoring.

Flouting.
