Over the (free) breakfast at a Marriott the other day I overheard a young lady asking "daddy, why is all news on CNN breaking news?" She has a point but actually my favorite newsroom adjective is "Action." We have Action News, Action Weather & Action Sports in fact a Google search for Action+News turned up 116M hits, Wikipedia even has a page devoted to it's history. I'm wondering where the stations can go next though? What further adjectives can be applied to horribly reported, sensationalized newscasts? How about "Alarum News" or "Hyperkinesia Weather?"
