I briefly worked at a newspaper in high school, doing box scores and writing up tiny briefs about high school baseball games. "Don't use adjectives like 'eye-popping,' instead use more objective descriptions, like 'game winning,'" was the kind of 5 minute instruction I got for this. Not that I think journalism has to be that way, but it is the kind of editorializing that certain outlets disdain. Also, too, we had this "eye-popping" tax rate way back in 2017.
