It's An 'Age' Thing
News programs drive me crazy. I think it must be the 'age thing'. All the announcers seem to be little girls around high school age, thin as twigs, with motor mouths. They gabble on and on saying absolutely nothing, repeating themselves, every so often taking in a huge lungful of air while swallowing a mouthful of saliva and then off they go again, brightly painted lips and artificially whitened teeth flashing in the camera lights. I tend to watch the CBC. They are nice quiet, calm folk who deliver the news with a minimum of flash. You can understand what they are saying. It's rather important these days to get the straight news...so much is going on. Maybe the young folks like all that gabble and the distraction of painted ladies in tight dresses...like I said, maybe it's an 'age thing'.
