    sentences puzzled

    please help me understand these two sentences, thanks!
    1, It wasn't a speech so much as an outpouring.
    2, Annie felt that she was being pushed aside in favor of a younger member of staff.

    and also I don't quite understand 'in favor of' from the second sentence.

    highly appreciated.

    Welcome to the forums.

    #1 The person making the speech became emotional in speaking, and poured out his/her emotions.

    #2 Annie feels that a younger member of staff is being preferred to her in the office and that as a result she is not receiving promotion or being recognized .
