Speaking of alternatives to the "Breaking News" label, seems they have increased the use of the "Just In" intro which sounds more commanding and urgent in my opinion.
NEW DAY, BLACK FRIDAY 2015

BERMAN: Have shoppers become hooked on their mobile devices to fill their needs?
PEREIRA: Guilty as charged!
BERMAN: Their shopping needs, I'm talking about. We'll break it down next.
PEREIRA: (gasps) What is wrong with you?!
BERMAN: I don't know!

Breaking News is such a cliche, that almost anything is better.  But, I do like This just in.  A lot.

Since "breaking news" is CNN's only bread and butter, they just call everything breaking news in hopes it will help ratings. You would think by now they would learn its not working.

Lol it's definitely NOT working! In fact, I think it only backfired because no story stands out anymore except for a relative few because everything is always breaking.

Breaking News should be categorized as any story that has...broken within the past 5 minutes that the staffers were unaware of before that affects people in the general public. Anything else can be Just In. 

 

Lets play a game. Anytime someone sees Breaking News, post it on page and hav people vote on whether it is or isn't.

Jerome, Actually, that was my original idea  of this thread -- getting people to comment on it.  Not on a separate page and not having people vote, though.   See earlier posts.

Can anyone remember when was the last time Piers didn't start his show with 'breaking news'? I may be exaggerating, but I'd say it happened once or twice in last two-three months. It's becoming like Nancy Grace's 'we've got a bombshell tonight' line. Trash TV.

Does Zimmerman deciding not to testify breaking news? I just..can't tell anymore.

 

I did mean within this page, btw. I wonder if its possible to poll a post.

Well, this is Breaking News:

http://sdrv.ms/16y2R3r

 

But it clearly doesn't deserve breaking away from World Sport or anything.

 

 

ETA: Scrapping "African Voices" for a plane that has caught a "mysterious" fire somewhere standing for days (?) without any casualties vs. a train crash. Plane fire it is.

It's sad how you could be talking abot SFO or Heathrow and Canada or Paris.

Having said that, CNNI are currently covering Heathrow in depth. CNN covered the story for the first time by simply saying "The plane fire at Heathrow has been extinguished. And had a few more details. CNNI considers it breaking news. CNN doesn't. Interesting

I seem to remember that CNN/Turner has a channel for airports. Maybe it was a semi-simulcast to that channel?

But a breaking news report about a train crash / airport ended at ~:45. Fluff news about sharks and whatnot is so cool.

I can recall 2 or 3 days of reporting for a train crash in Canada. 45 minutes is enough, I guess, for France.

I think they shut down that channel a few years ago

I think that the very Englandcentric CNNi is covering Heathrow b/c (a) Richard Quest is there to babble about it, (B)  it might disrupt airport traffic, (3) it happened in England.  None of which will interest NAm viewers.

train wreck in Canada incinerated an entire town.  Horrible thing.  French train crash wasn't of that calibre of horribilosity.

At first, the Canada train wasn't thought to be as deadly as it was. But a train killing 7 seems more "breaking news" than an empty plane fire. But they both are severe

It's still not as bad as CNNUS looking inward.
