Ever noticed

gws145034HAVE you ever noticed that the media often use grammatically correct and easy-to-understand language when it comes to reporting the standpoints of the government but jerky, substandard language on its opponents?

Have you ever noticed as well that the VOs (voice overs) for TV and radio broadcasts tends to be in clearly enunciated tones and unaccented accents for the same?

What does that suggest to you? What effect do you reckon it might have on other people such as your friends and family?

Do you notice these things, even on an irregular basis? Why do you think you notice or don’t notice? Is there something about your work or upbringing that makes you notice or not notice? How would you know? And how would you go about getting to know?
