BBC. Lunchtime news

In reporting the problems with EU Anglo/Irish negotiations the bulletin referred to Theresa May “scrambling” to get an agreement before the deadline. Various other less perjorative words could have been chosen, striving; fighting; working; trying; attempting; determined etc.
The word scrambling implies desperation, lack of focus, incompetency, panic all of which may or may not be true but it is not objective reporting and the word is emotive and frankly judgemental and not impartial.
