BBC NEWS | Americas | Washington diary: Bloomberg’s gamble
I have always complained about the poor word proofing on BBC online.
But now the editorial content is starting to annoy me.
In the above article, supposedly about the potential of Bloomberg running for president, sounds awfully like a British tabloid newspaper.
“The rumour has been tickling Washington’s political gonads for months now.”
“Arnie yodelled and then smiled like a split watermelon.”
“He was the independent candidate who ran in 1992 with a face like an extra-terrestrial and a voice like a duck.”
I know that the use of similes are somewhat more obscure than in a tabloid, but it is definitely tending in that direction.
