Newscast euphemism

Post by SolarMax » Sat Jul 13, 2019 11:17 pm

Noticing lately that street reporters are telling us, from crime or accident scenes, that victims "Pass Away" from their injuries. No. They don't "pass away." They DIE. They are KILLED. Use the correct words to tell the story. We can handle it.

I saw a George Carlin bit about that.

And I agree.

They could say,"Taking a dirt nap," but they want to at least SOUND caring of the deceased's loved ones !!!!
