In the 10 years I've been covering business, there is no phrase I hate more than at the end of the day, the New Agey replacement for the Old Biz stalwart bottom line.This column made me wonder, what is the most over-used phrase in television news? "This just in?" ... "For more on that story?" ... "Full team coverage?" ... "In other news?" ... "Time will tell?" ... "In a stunning development?" ... "Here at home?" You can find a list of media "groaners" here and there are surely dozens more we're missing. So let's hear which worn-out phrases make you cringe. (And stay classy, San Diego.)
Bottom line at least sounded like business, not like some guru pontificating.
