Pronounced: REE-uh-fie (alt: RAY-uh-fie), verb
Notes: I didn’t know this word
The word mediocracy means “rule by the mediocre” (not the media, as I guessed)
This word came into English in the mid-1800s
Background / Comments
Given the definition, you can tell it is mediocre combined with -ocracy (rule). So, by thinking ‘rule by the media’, I was close, but wasn’t right.
