they report each story like a tattle-telling kid would to his mother, usually with a 'can you believe it?!!', mini-hysteria flavour. they TRY to incite negative feelings from the listenership. just listen for the words that they punch up. reporters are just like gosssiping old women with axes to grind. pathetic!

They spent 5 minutes each night the past three nights on Tiger Woods stupid car crash, with everything going on in the world. they also waste time on annoying inspirational nonsense and keep pushing religious crap.
