BBC News

They're using the phrase "a sense of" even more than they used to. They refer to "the sense of jubilation" in the Democrat camp, or "a sense of taking stock" amongst Republicans. Practically every other sentence uses this moronic phrase. There's a real sense of lazy journalism at the BBC.

On the "moronic phrase" note: "Yes We Can" is just about the stupidest campaign slogan ever.

Also, the election coverage on the BBC was surprisingly biased. Way too many left-leaning talking heads, very
little positive coverage of the McCain campaign. It wasn't Fox News, of course, but it was bad: I expected better from the BBC. It was almost worth it to see John Bolton nearly explode with anger though.
