Flash! Mr. Winchell was known to have a rapid-fire machine-Gun like delivey which would tend to produce excitement if not panic. a Winchell announcement that there is no cause for alarm ( say, following a successful Bomb Test) might have the opposite effect. Winchell was an alarmist , but had a popular, tactical style that immediately flagged attention. Today it would be considered somewhat hackney akin to the phony excitement of some Newscasts and Newscasters such as WINS with Marimbas, drum beats and terse- rapid fire commentary.
