If journalists want to play with inflection/nuance/angle/shade/shadows etc. they should make movies or take up poetry.

Like music, poetry, painting etc.  a news report can have various angles, shadows, shades and emotional story arcs. That’s how too many journalists play spin games in their coverage.

Many people approach their craft with a sense of artistry. When journalists do it, the risks can far outweigh the returns.
