Why does the media constantly refer to Europe's countries as States?

I know that the EU is made up of member countries,but the media always refers to them as states,and now the media is now calling Kosovo a new state.Is this to condition the masses on a new way of thinking? Seems kind of Orwellian 1984 without the torture do you agree?

a state doesn't only mean like what we have here in America... a state is a territory that is united in some way under some form of government, so just because all the American states are part of the same country doesn't mean the media is trying to say all of Europe is acting as the same country...they just don't want to keep saying nation or country all day...
