Commentary: News broadcasters and news writers promoting certain notions

I wish all news broadcasters (including news presenters and news reporters) and news writers would not use phrases like "those who fought for our country", "those who fought for our freedom", and "honoring and celebrating those who were willing to sacrifice their lives for freedom" while either presenting or doing news reports concerning former or current members of services specialized in defending the United States (doing so would make them appear as if they were expressing their own personal feelings pertaining to those former or current members or promoting certain notions pertaining to them and those services) when they should only be providing information pertaining to them whereas their audiences could form their own personal feelings or notions pertaining to them.

Yeah! So it's--tomorrow morning's probably for the best morning for me with people who get to have that extra hour with daylight saving time [ending]. Once again, if you want to annoy people, give 'em that today; correct them. There's no savings; there's no 's' on that. Saving! So, just wanted you to annoy your friends and neighbors".
