It's a holiday weekend in Toronto and it looks like this journalist and his editor are relaxing a little too much.
In Grade 8, our teacher taught us the term "run-on sentence" and this one, by Greg Quill at The Toronto Star, seems to qualify. The topic is Al Jazeera TV.
But the business news lede is not the relative value of the American dollar or the state of the first-world’s economies, and its celebrity interview subjects, conducted by dizzyingly busy news mediator and chat show host Riz Khan, one of Al Jazeera’s key operatives, are more along the lines of Indian poet and lyricist Javed Akhtar, veteran Cuban jazz singer Omara Portuondo and, yes, Canadian novelist Margaret Atwood, than with the stars of the latest Hollywood blockbusters or American pop music chart toppers.Also, "dizzyingly" is not a word. Try to say it. It's ridiculous.
