That Being Said

What is up with the universal adoption of “that being said”? It’s getting hard to read an article these days without coming across this ridiculous and inessential phrase. It is a redundant cliché used to fill space, sort of like, “at this time”  when the person really means to say “now”. What it really illustrates is the group think that is so pervasive these days, as if the malleable minds of the masses are always looking for the latest trend to grasp on to and call their own.

That being said, please stop using it!
