TV background music overpowers the speaker. Why do they do this?
So often on a TV show or commercial they play background music to sensationalize what the speaker is saying which instead overshadows what the speaker is saying. An instance is the 5:30 pm NBC news show headlines. As they announce the headlines the sensationalizing music is so loud you can't hear what the headlines are. This also happens on TV shows, movies where they play such loud sensationalizing music in the background that it blocks out what the speakers are saying; the background music becomes foreground music. Anyone else notice this?
