Am I alone in feeling heartily sick of ‘trailers’ for forthcoming events. I first noticed it with the Budget, a few years ago, we were given the highlights. Then the Queen’s Christmas Broadcast, we knew what she was going to say before she said it. Now it seems that we are drip fed everything before the event.
Then there are ‘sources close to’, this really gets on my nerves. Does this mean someone who is totally disloyal to their employer/friend, is the employer/friend using it as a way to get their point across or is the ‘source’ just a way for a reporter to print a rumour that he heard in the pub?
We wait to hear news of the lockdown ending or being modified, two or three days before we hear bits and pieces.
I just don’t understand why any of this is necessary, why do we need to know ‘half a story’ in advance. If someone can give me a valid reason why this is all appropriate I would be very interested.
