    Normally confident, composed politicians are looking drained and shook up today.

    To my point, "breaking news" has been overused, sensationalized, and often aimed at getting viewership....rather than be responsible news reporting. It can sometimes take the impact out of the really important stories, as folks gradually become immune to the relative importance of the many, many stories that nowhere match the one we unfortunately witnessed today. My point is this....breaking news, highlighted by red alerts on our screens, should be relegated to important stories, not just ordinary stories.
