breaking news

why mimic the networks?
I see "breaking news" about the upcoming Bush visit
then - "we interrupt this...." on another feature
for decades the networks have tried to "draw" in the viewers
by using such phrases
like-oh my god- if you don't watch this newscast life will end
as soon as any item is posted on indymedia it is "breaking news"
please try and stay original
please let people decide what they "need" to read
for as much criticism of corporate media that there is
I don't understand the reason to mimic them
