Here we go again

Sigh. When will AAP learn? Another story beginning “The scorned former lover“.

You can’t tell from this particular article, but previous reporting implied she dumped him when she found photos of him with strippers. (For more info on this court story, check out my previous post, scorned and jilted.) But even if he had dumped her, do we really need the word “scorned”? It’s such an emotionally-charged word. Look up scorn in the dictionary. It means “an object of contempt”. In the interests of impartial reporting, it should just be “former lover”.

Go on, you know you have something to say...
