I am reading a book teaching how to write idiomatic sentences. In light of that book, "situation" or "phenomenon" ect. are particularly dangerous words that should be avoided as they always drag redundant words. It also tells the reader "use simple sentence, other than complex one". Thus, I revised the first one. Could you tell me whether my revision works for you? Thanks.
Your reconstructed sentence does not sound natural or logical.
You have changed the subject of the sentence(the focus of the issue) from 'foreign buyers' to 'TV programs'(the media), which should not be the case.
not a teacher
Thank you both.
