The Inefficiency of Words.

I also am annoyed by excessive use of “breaking news.” It once meant a new, surprising event. It was applicable for a few reports in a short period, after which, having _broken_, additional information is simply the latest news. Over-use of the phrase dulls its edge; it resembles the excessive splattering of exclamation points! It lends a tone of hysteria! They should cut it out!

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
