News Analysis

Date: Wed Jun 21 2000 - 10:45:09 MDT

I haven't directly observed this on the tv news (I hate tv news, it's largely
junk), but I have seen it in the local papers. It's marked either "news
analysis" or just "analysis", but I doubt most people pay attention to that
(sort of like the ads made up to look like news articles, hoping you won't
notice the "advertisement" markings at the top).
