If it Bleeds, it Leads:
An Anatomy of Television News

By Matthew Robert Kerbel
Boulder, CO: Westview Press
2000
Pg. 36:
Guy: It’s been compared to potholes in the sky (scary, provocative). Turbulence is often nothing more than a minor bump in flight (calm, reasonable), but there are some times when it can take you on a roller-coaster ride at 30,000 feet (scary, provocative). Veteran flyers insist that it’s nothing to be afraid of because planes are designed to take that kind of punishment (calm, reasonable).
