"Us"? You got a mouse in your pocket?

You know what drives me crazy? (Well, many things, obviously, but bear with me.) The tendency of the media to refer to their own perrception of the public as "us." From ABC News Websie:

"What captivated us about the Scott Peterson murder trial? Were there any real winners?"

Speak for yourself: it didn't "captivate" ME at all. Who, exactly, is this "us" that they are talking about? Try to define it: you can't.
