"Breaking News"?

Yesterday morning, I was listening to Laura Ingraham on the radio and it was announced on the news that the Democrats were going to stop the roll-call partway through and nominate Barack Obama by acclamation.  I loved the idea that this moment, which would be made out to be “spontaneous” was being scripted.  

Sure enough, Fox News broke into their newscast with a “Breaking News” announcement:
Oh, big surprise!  
I don’t care if they scripted it, but let’s not pretend that it’s anything but a show.
And I know the Republicans will have just as much a show as the Democrats do, so don’t think it’s just the Dems I’m fed up with.  (Notice that the “GOP” in my blog title is gone?  If I can be sure that my blog wouldn’t disappear, I’d go ahead and change the URL, too.)
