What does 'breaking' even mean anymore?

   Thread Started January 23 at 2:28PM

"This, Is Breaking News!"

"From Clark Manifold, President Of Content, to all lessers--I've recently been hired to jazz up our coverage, and, after watching a few minutes of our news coverage, have concluded that what we need are more breaking news stories. Therefore, the following topics are to be proceeded with "This, is CNN Breaking News,":

The D-Day invasion, the Tet Offensive, the JFK assassination, the outbreak of WW One, the Elvis phenomenon, the disappearance of Jimmy Hoffa, Walter Cronkite's retirement announcement, the moon landings, George Washington's inauguration, the invention of super-glue, the demise of disco music, and the discovery of fire. Anything you're not sure about, "Breaking News" it, and err on the side of not pissing me off."


   

A book by our Michael Hogan

Sebastian and the Invisible Island tells the tale of a young boy stranded on a mysterious island where his only hope for rescue lies in feuding extraterrestrials who also yearn for home.

“This is a great book to enjoy between parent and preteens or younger. It drew us with its intriguing tropical island setting, heroics and strange goings on.” -Sally

“Excellent reading material for the age group. A breath of fresh air for young people in an area that is growing darker.” –Robert

Available in Kindle ($2.99) and paperback ($9.97).
