Breaking News Abuse
Admin Lecture Series ^ | November 20, 2003 | Admin Moderator

Posted on 11/20/2003 9:52:43 AM PST by Admin Moderator

There are way too many non-breaking news stories being placed in breaking news. It's gotten so bad, this is in breaking news. Please, if the story has been posted once in breaking news, it doesn't belong there again unless it's a critical update. Also, don't abuse topics. A story does not need to be posted in every single topic. It does not generate more hits to your thread.

Michael Jackson, Kobe Bryant, Scott Peterson, etc, are not breaking news, unless convicted. This is tabloid journalism, we are a conservative forum.

Related threads can be found here.

When and if Michael Jackson gets arrested, is that breaking news?

Hint: If the main journalist on the "breaking" news is Paula Zahn, Geraldo Rivera, or Greta Van Susteren, then odds are it probably not breaking news worthy.

This is tabloid journalism

At its worst, mind you. I cannot tell you how many stories appeared in breaking news yesterday regarding Michael Jackson. I don't care about any of that crap. Let's keep this forum informative, and original. No tabloids in breaking news!

"No tabloids in breaking news!"

...and let's try to keep Breaking News out of tabloid news! I hate it when we have a nice little mindless, inane thread going and somebody breaks in with a "White House EVACUATED!" post. The nerve...
