On TV, it happens usually on shows where a lot of issues to be covered later in the show are given shortly at the very beginning. So, before they start with moving into full stories (e.g on the NEWS), they give each of the headlines in a few seconds each and then they start the actual news in details, with full stories. So far so good.
But before they move to the full stories in details, there is usually a short-break. So, the whole process goes like this; EVENING NEWS WITH JAMES (James starts reading the headlines quickly) 1- The man who stole... 2- Unemployment rates have been... 3- The accident on the.... 4- An old lady who was...
(and he finishes by saying) THAT IS AFTER THE BREAK!
So, my question is why does newsman say "THAT IS AFTER THE BREAK", when he listed a lot of stories, not one story. We know that there are a lot of stories to be covered and all of those stories will come one after the other. So, he obviously means ALL OF THOSE STORIES LISTED in the beginning will come after the break.
And, if there are many STORIES to come (which mean plural), why does he not say "THOSE ARE AFTER THE BREAK" or "THESE ARE AFTER THE BREAK!?
