Recently, a local reporter covering a murder told how the victim had been "shot and killed multiple times." Unless this was some sort of paranormal undead thing, I highly doubt the victim died more than once…
Another reporter announced that a person had been "murdered dead." Imagine that.
The saddest one I've ever seen was related to a tragic accident in which a mother and two of her young triplets were killed. This reporter proclaimed that "two of the three twins" lost their lives.
For the sake of TV viewers everywhere, let's hope that stupidity is a condition that can be cured.
