In describing a previous rule change, one could write:
"The school administration updated their rules last week to say that red is no longer a color."
but many times (mostly in the news), they will add something such as "quietly", implying deception, or with other words, more than one mental image for the same statement.
My description is off, but I'm hoping someone knows what I'm referring to, and can help me identify what this device would be called.
Ex1. "The school board last week, quietly passed a rule stating that red is no longer a color".
Ex2. "The ranking member stated, without evidence, that red seemed to imply emotion rather than a visual cue".
Both of these statements could have been written without the bold word.
