I thought the dramatic graphics and sensationalism was only for TV. Now you also find it on the Internet.
On today's main yahoo page, you have this news that there was a shooting at a casino in Las Vegas. The latest news is that the people who were shot are OK. the shooter is under custody and will more than likely be going to jail. This post though is about the pictures and graphics that are intended to catch your attention so you can be "hooked" to read or at least look at it.
They have them every year and for every disaster imaginable:
"THE CHALLENGER DISASTER"
"THE FLOODS OF 2007"
"KATRINA AND KILLER TORNADOES"
"THE SUMMER FIRES OF 05"
They actually almost make it all seem and sound like a movie title. I think they are obnoxious and pathetic. Notice the cross hairs (or telescopic sight) added as to the picture? The picture also shows where the shooting took place, but in real life, the place does not look that Orange/red dramatic color.
Get ready next year for:
"2008 THE YEAR BUSH ABOLISHED THE CONSTITUTION"
