It's a lazy direction journalism has taken... "CNN Factor' Making a meal of "Now", every thing "Now" is breaking, "LIVE", stop press etc.

Basically they are loosing money and loud headlines and current exaggerated news is the de facto method of competition, especially among the rags that sell copies.

Sadly nobody reads, or rather Pays for High quality journalism anymore. Thats why You have PBS, and Europe has State owned Channels... Alas, even our State owned Channels are heading toward sensationalism these days.
