Maybe It's Just Me

News people (they used to be newsmen, but that was back when we also had “Men Working” signs) seem to be adopting some speech, um, behaviors, for lack of a better word, that bother me to some degree:

--Up Talking--You know, where every statement is a question.....Like a Valley Girl.
--Fast talking--Usually perpetrated by women.  I can’t manage to make out what’s being said.
--And then there’s this “stuttering” crap, where the speaker starts out with uh-uh-uh-uh rapidly.

Do these people no longer take diction classes in TV News-Being school?

Maybe it’s just me.....
