Sports journalists

I hate it.

When sports journalists write in tiny paragraphs.

Maybe they think that sports fans can’t concentrate as well as readers of regular journalism.

Maybe they think it’s an eye-catching, easy-to-read style.

But it does my head in.

You’re not going to get crime or finance news reported this way.  I don’t know why sports are so different.

It’s so stop-and-start it loses any sense of rhythm.

What could be a beautiful melody becomes wildly staccato.

To manipulate a Jill Scott lyric.

I wish it would stop.
