"Going Forward"

Stupid expression. It's not as if we can "go back".

''I APPRECIATE you joining us'' ''Thank you SO MUCH for joining us'' and all other, overly friendly greetings and lines to reporters. It all comes across as just fake and phony. It's not like these reporters are doing you any favors or anything special.  It's their job and do live interviews and links, they are on duty like anyone else.

Yes, I have thought that before. Fair enough for guests, but not staff. :) Without trying to be controversial here again, you see it alot with the younger/ newer anchors. You don't see it so much, if at all with more senior experienced anchors.

Local news in my area, their budget was considerably slashed a few years back, most presenters now are people in their 20's or 30's. They just read the autocue, and nothing else. If for example, there was sound problems with the inserted weather forecast, and they don't even acknowlege it and just continue reading the autocue like nothing happened. They're like robots.

Don Lemon used to be criticised for that only he left it at just "We appreciate you" which was just plain wrong!

''Thank you for joining ME''

 

This also annoys me and tends to be done by the more ego driven CNN people. I am not joining you, I am joining CNN, a news channel and you are only presenting a bulletin produced and done by a dozen of people behind the scenes. So saying joining ME actually excludes them.

To be fair, they're talking between themselves. The guests aren't talking to the producers and newsroom team, they're talking to the presenter, so it makes sense.

If they 'said thanks for joining us', it would imply there are more people in the conversation. The viewers are only intended to see on air personalities. The people behind the scenes are called 'people behind the scenes' for a reason.

I should have clarified, it's about that sentence used as an introduction to the bulletin, not in interviews. That said, I don't like it when used in interviews either.

'I'm just curious' (anchor to reporter).

Well aren't we all? :)

"EXCLUSIVE BREAKING NEWS": Intruder breaches the White House. What is this? Are they going to have a separate intro for this? A more dramatic, apocalyptic one?
