Sherri over at For Myself and Strangers complains about the phrase "Brutally Murdered" used by television news.
This is just another example of the stupidity of most newscasters (or at least their writers).
Another example. I recently heard one newscaster commenting about the film "Ray":
"Too bad Ray Charles died before the film came out. It would have been nice for him to see it."
Um...think before you speak.
