Quick hit

If you listen to CBC Radio News, particularly “The World This Hour,” you may have noticed the new focus on using the present tense in narration and voice-overs.

I understand that you want to make your news seem current and live, but when I hear things like “Olmert’s Kadima party wins the most seats in yesterday’s election” I cringe.

It just doesn’t flow.
