Breaking news of the day awakens reminiscences, great and undesirable

If there ever was an overused phrase in today’s media, it is “breaking news.”

I’m not a journalist, but my sense is that it is meant to endow just about anything coming in excess of the telly or social media with an immediacy that is breathtaking. It is transmitted by the newsgirl, who catches the guys’ awareness with the looks of a product, providing the most current gaffe or brilliant analysis manufactured by the president as he hurries to board a Maritime helicopter to his up coming critical (all presidential conferences are crucial) meeting.

20-four-hour information channels of all styles have to produce breaking news normally to preserve the listeners and viewers, at the extremely least, sentient.

Sentient, by the way, according to my old standby, Merriam-Webster’s is “ability to understand or experience factors.” By the close of seeing a prolonged news cycle, I am usually losing my sentience and slipping into ennui, sensation very little about what is coming through the tube.
