    Had you ever been bothered by news broadcasters (either local or national) sounding emotional and/or opinionated while presenting reports regarding certain subjects or immediately after doing so?

    Here are some transcripts of some examples of a certain news broadcaster sounding emotional and/or opinionated while presenting reports regarding certain subjects for a local TV news program broadcast earlier this July:

    “We have another church burglary to tell you about…”

    “…the bad guy was caught on camera, now he needs to be caught by police"

    “We have a lot to tell you about. We start with sad news, though, about an endangered species washing up dead on Fort Morgan. The sea turtle was found with a beach chair tangled around its neck…it’s really heartbreaking…"

    “It’s one of the most anticipated events every summer and once again they didn’t disappoint”

    “Oh yeah, you got to love it; lots of fun out there”

    “Now there was a bit of a scare today during the show, though; a boat capsized, sending eleven people in the water. The coast guard was johnny on the spot and rescued everyone. No one was hurt”

    “Up next, though, a jaguar got loose inside at the Audubon Zoo in New Orleans this morning. Thankfully the zoo was closed, but wait until you hear how many animals the jaguar killed”

    I had often found some broadcasts of some of the local news programs for some of the TV stations located near my home to had been both very comedic and very dramatic in recent times.

    The guy who made the thread "Why don't people get sawed in half on kid's shows?" makes better threads.

    I would keep my feelings to my self if I were presenting a news report or doing a news report through a certain medium (audiences for news reports ought to be allowed to form their own feelings regarding news without the feelings of their presenters or reporters).

    Would you like to post a rant on news broadcasting related to sensationalism?

    This is a really random thread, and there is some other guy known for making random threads; one of them being he wanted to know why people didn't get sawed in half on children's TV shows.

    Some of the local news programming broadcast by one of the TV stations near my home often appeared to have had a news presenter sighing in some presentations of theirs related to news (as if the news presenter or news presenters appearing to had done so was expressing disgust toward certain subjects).

    can i ask why you dislike news casters displaying emotion? they're people, not robots

    Because they were unnecessary, distracting, unprofessional, and potentially irritating.
