Remember the time when, indeed, it was "Breaking News?"
Not any more.
Fact is, Breaking News has lost its brand, its luster. Of course there really is, from time to time, Breaking News, but like everything else today, the idea of real cogent, factually Breaking News has generally been marginalized. Lost in the wilderness of the 24/7 news cycle that is more manufactured than ever.
Breaking News might as well be "Update central." Too bad the cablers have abused it. CNN is real bad here and Fox News too.
