Has anyone else noticed how often that ‘outrage’ appears in newspaper and online news headlines these days?
I had to remind myself what it actually means, so often do I come across it:
When was the last time you were really outraged by something?
Semantic bleaching again – overuse a word and it ceases to have any impact.
I’m not providing examples and driving traffic toward any of them – you know who they are. But imagine spending three years to get a degree in journalism and then being constantly driven (or subbed) to turn every story into an example of outrage?
