Is it just me or did the media just adopt "Gitmo" as the official nickname of Guantanamo Bay in Cuba? I started seeing this term about a month ago when the detention facility at Guantanamo hit the headlines again. I could figure it out, but how many were in the dark? How does the media decide such a nickname is mainstream?

Am I just to young? Was that a popular nickname after the Bay of Pigs?
