Wordplay - exponential

Typical BBC cut'n paste item trying to make political capital from what is happening in Somalia. Apart from the sheer ghastliness of those who dream up this kind of opportunistic unpleasantness, it really is worthwhile using an online dictionary sometimes. I suggest the word 'exponential' is one worth looking up here.

Perversely, we have been witnessing an exponential growth in alarmist hyperbole.

I agree and this kind of rubbish isn't difficult to check out, even though the Beeb can't get the hang of it.
