What really rattles my chain is when people talk about having "issues"
The other things about news journalists that annoy me are:
1) Why do they all have to stand up instead of sitting behind a desk this is taken to the ludicrous extreme (I think by the BBC but it may be another lot)when they force their correspondent on military matters who is obviously of limited mobility to stand using a walking frame.
2) Why do the send their correspondents to stand impotently outside of buildings where something may or may not have been happening. What a complete and pointless waste of time. When the forthcoming Royal wedding was announced they had a man reporting from outside Buck House when neither the happy couple nor Queen Liz were in residence. Why?
3) Why do they interview each other? I don't want to hear one Journalist extract the personal views of another I want to hear facts.
4) Why hasn't the BBC's Robert Peston been sent to the tower for his complicity in exacerbating the down turn into a credit crunch then a recession.
