There are so many videos of this echoing - Collusion, Beginning of the End, Impeachment, for example. Also anything that can be tagged Climate Crisis or Climate Disaster gets this treatment as well.

It might be easier to take if one outlet reported using one set of words and another chose to use a different phrasing, but when they are nearly identical it reinforces the OP's point and, for me, creates cynicism about the event being reported.
As an example, there was a moon landing 1969. A lot of the same language was used by all the news outlets.

Zwang And kite surfer/liberty will tell you it's fake, I say it was news, and it was reported on. Much like the news today.
