for a strong, fast pick-me-up
Call me a bloody pedant – but when I first read this breaking news tweet, I thought: Why was Billy Slater detained by a police reporter Pat Molihan? Citizen’s arrest after a dramatic crash tackle?
BREAKING Billy Slater detained by police reporter
@PatMolihan was first with the player involved & is on the ground Manchester
A dash would make the meaning clear. You could save space by dropping the WAS.
Billy Slater detained by police – reporter @PatMolihan first with player involved etc…
The eye reads clusters of words – such as detained by police reporter
Punctuation keeps some words together and other words apart – such as detailed by police – reporter Pat Molihan.
Anyway must go watch the news to see about what’s happened to Billy.
