Isn't It Enough…
… that CNN Is going wall to wall with Michael Jackson coverage… which I almost understand. I mean, we’ve been here before with the world-changing Anna Nicole Smith saga… so at least this guy actually added something other than tits to the culture.
But do they need to keep claiming that every word that falls out of anyone’s mouth is “BREAKING NEWS?”
I’m pretty sure that live footage of American troops invading Iraq is Breaking News. I’m pretty sure that a newly announced Supreme Court ruling is Breaking News. I’m pretty sure that there may be some breaking news in a presidential press conference, though not always. But people – mostly ghouls and leeches – speculating about a dead superstar without any new news breaking for many hours… not.
