Why is it our local television must run the same news stories over and over and over? I keep seeing “breaking” news announcements, only to find it’s a story they have been recycling for the past three days. It’s just a matter of time until the lead story will be the Hindenburg explosion or the sinking of the Titanic.
News is defined as “newly received,” not the dog who fell through the ice four days ago. I’d rather turn on the news and see the reporters playing cards and looking bored than dredging up anything to fill the broadcast time.
