Why is the BBC obsessed by probing?

In the last 2 days:

Physicists probe ancient pyramid

Murder probe follows fight death

Expenses probe MEP is deselected

Rio baby hospital deaths probed

US probes Afghanistan abuse claim

Murder probe after stabbing death

It's fewer letters than "investigate". Trust you to notice.

Say a probe crashes into the sea and the mission to investigate what went wrong fails would the subsequent enquiry be the Probe probe probe?

OK, I've sent the BBC some feedback, we'll see what they say.

Quote:
Is there any way BBC News could use the word Probe slightly less frequently in headlines?

In the last 24 hours we've had:

Physicists probe ancient pyramid
Murder probe follows fight death
Expenses probe MEP is deselected
Rio baby hospital deaths probed
US probes Afghanistan abuse claim
Murder probe after stabbing death

And that doesn't seem to be an exceptional day, most days I see several headlines that involve some kind of probing. There are plenty of alternatives, most of which would actually convey a more accurate impression of the story.

Try here:
