“Got stabbed”

Speaking of the stabbing of Wire actor Christopher J Clanton, local DC Fox 5 anchor Brian Bolter, on the ten o’clock newscast, used that abhorrent language! “Got stabbed”?! Where did he get this stabbed material? How much did it cost him to get this stabbed? Surely, the newsman could have used the less insufferable “was stabbed”, or, rejecting the intolerable passive voice, said, say, “Christopher J Clanton suffered minor injuries when someone stabbed him during a brawl . . . .”

Perhaps I ask too much.
