Proper usage of words

I don't know who your writers are but, their choice of words leaves a lot to be desired. For example. "Obama cries". He actually did not cry (please look up the definition for cry). Rather, he was tearful. Come on, it's simple fifth grade writing. This is only an example, but I've been reading headlines and articles like this for the past year.

Re: Proper usage of words

While I wholeheartedly agree with your analysis of the level of "writing" on most "news" stories (don't get me started on the level of "reporting"!), these stories aren't written by Comcast employees.  Rather, they're linked in from the various "news" agencies and run pretty much unedited.  It's with those folks that your complaint lies.
