Adjectives! Adjectives! Monday June 28, 2004

Posted by Pari(பரி) in பொது.

Reportedly, supposedly, allegedly, probably.

What are these? and why am I listing them here?

Well, these are the most used adjectives in English language in the media world. I see/read in the media everyday and am immune to this now.

But this piece of “reporting” caught my attention, for it uses all adjectives at once.

Vice President Dick Cheney (search) reportedly, supposedly, allegedly, probably told Sen. Pat Leahy (search) to go — not to Hades — but to do something to himself that we all know is most cases physically impossible.

BTW, Fox News’ motto is “balanced” reporting. And they don’t have any “agenda” per se. They are always “right.”

did u watch Cheney on Fox News (saturday morning). He told, Leahy deserved it and he did not repent a single minute for mouthing…. Atleast he ‘owned’ responsibility 😉

The sircasm can’t be missed from the FoxNews report!

Indeed there was an attempt by Republicans to repudiate the report of the “auto-coitus” episode”!!

நம்ப ஊரு சாமியார் யாரானும் Chieney சொன்னதை try பண்ணலாம்! மருநாள் நம்ம ஜனங்கள் அந்த சாமியாரை கும்பிட ஆரம்பிச்சுடுவாங்க!
