I love this

Lost Remote offers a guide to the new newswriting. It's scarily accurate.

My favorite: "Visit our blog."
OLD: Our what?
NEW: Our GM saw someone else doing it, so here it is.

and also:
"Are your children in danger? Watch us tonight to find out."
OLD: Yes, there is contaminated water at our playground that is making children ill.
NEW: No they aren't. Good tease writing, though.

That IS scarily accurate! I ignore teasers now, because sometimes the story NEVER appears at all! Frustrating.
