"The problem with 24-hour news cycle is it’s built for a particular thing: 9/11. Other than that, there isn’t 24 hours of stuff to talk about in the same way. How do you keep people watching it? O.J.’s not going to kill someone every day. That’s gone. What do you have to do? You have to elevate the passion of everything else that happens that might even be somewhat mundane and elevate it to the extent that this is breaking news. ‘This is developing news. This is breaking developing news.’ The aggregate effect of that is that you begin to lose the lexicon. You begin to it lose any meaning of what ‘breaking news’ means, or ‘urgent,’ or ‘look at this,’ or ‘dangerous.’"
