Erin reflects on Academy Award winner Meryl Streep

When Meryl Streep won an Academy Award on Sunday night, she made sure to start her acceptance speech by thanking her husband–and her longtime makeup artist. Then she got on to the producers and studio folks. That caught the attention of Erin Burnett.

    Great program, Erin ! I've been in the television news business since graduation from Ithaca College in 1974 until Multple Sclerosis forced an early departure in 2007. Here is a suggestion from a loyal viewer: when you continue your reports on whether the husband strangled his wife, please drop the term "to death" from the sentence. Strangulation is, by definition, an end game, i.e. you wouldn't say "drowned to death." You could say choked to death or, or throttled to death, but strangled is all that is needed. Same with electrocuted. Again, you guys rock ! Thanks for your time.

      It is just Erin's way of speaking. I have been watching her programmes for years, and I noticed it too. However I found it quite endearing. 🙂 It adds character and make her simply her. She is simply the best.
