When a story starts with.
"The heavy drinking done by young teenagers is a ticking timebomb ready to explode on all of us. That's according to a report by the Richard Hammond Brigade..."
I hate it so much. Its like they're tricking you into giving you their attention. Stories based on 'new reports' are always dragged out on slow news days, and they know that if they start it with "A study on bla bla bla has shown..." that idiots will be bored and won't care.
So instead they make you think: :O Listen to Nicholas Owen ranting about underage drinking!
Also, the BBC will never, ever say 'before' when referring to a sporting event. Its literally always 'ahead of'. Pricks.
