I hate it when TV news personalities think they are being fair when they throw the hand grenade of the day to two opposing partisans and then let them speed-talk their talking points
There was a brilliant example of poor guest-control on (the usually excellent) Newsnight. I believe it was in the UK election buildup, and starred John Prescott.
The worst phrase, endlessly repeated by Newsbeat (the "News" team featured on BBC Radio 1), is "It's come out..." as in "It's come out that there are health concerns over acme widgets"

"At the end of the day"
"In the final analysis"
Giving anything over 100%
"an endless stream of nonpunctuated dross usually of a flaming nature to be honest this is probably my biggest hate its often pointless trying to guess where sentences end of course bad grammar compounds the problem"
