This piece was conceived to highlight the negative nature of ‘The News’ and it’s consumption. Not a new observation at all, But: whatever the news is, the insertion of negative adjectives on the part of the news broadcaster gives the audience of the point of view of the news channel itself. Just about all news broadcasts are fairly negative in nature, so to consume these stories every day we get our daily dose of BAD news. Would the news be more palatable if the adjectives were removed, or at least toned down? Here they are, the adjectives of one particular news broadcast. Seperated into positive adjectives and negative adjectives. There were 13 negative and 4 positive ones. And the tune….? you get it in the end..!
