wwwwhhhyyyyy? :'( (sniffing) why should we "Don't miss your daily edition of in-depth news"? to increase Anxiety? its gonna happen anyway, so let us know about it when they fix it... thats a bad way to introduce a news agency, its like saying all news are bad news, isnt it enought that we have to live some of these bad news?

Agreed. It sounds like its trying to profit off of human tragedy. I guess that's news for you.

I think the idea is quite ok. (Well, the "provoking-ad-with-9/11" is not that great, I admit.) But what disturbs me is that line "Don't miss..." It sounds just like "Dont't miss our GREAT SPECIAL OFFERS" or something similar - which doesn't siut the subject.

News does profit exist from human tregedy, so adverts for news will only follow on from this. You have to choose the most dramatic news to get the idea accrosss best. Get over it. Never watch / read news if you don't agree with profiting from it.

Strip. Strip. Strip.

September the 10th is in the middle of October?

All newspapers profit from tragedy. Big tragedy is big news, and big news is the business newspapers are in.

Profit off of tragedy? Isn't that what the American Government does everyday in other countries?
