The Bumper Tease

Rather than teasing me about some news you’re going to tell me later, just tell me now. Please. Even on CNN, they tease you with partial news before a break, promising some amazing story if you stay tuned. They tend to make up details about the story, making it sound like something they know it’s not. It doesn’t work. I don’t stay tuned, I just go to another news outlet to find the details, usually before they actually cover the story.

Teasing me with news just makes me leave for somewhere that doesn’t tease me. Please stop trying to tease me.
