Breaking News

Isn't it sad that hype about news has penetrated to even the most mundane or ubiquitous tidbits of information.

For days, CNN will run 'Breaking News' about the mine tragedy recently even when there is no real, "new", news to report.

So sad in fact, that the ticker at the bottom of the channel has to prefix other, actually breaking news with "Happening Now".
