Report: ESPN still listing that same story as breaking news

Linda CohnSeveral household sources are reporting that ESPN has been breaking the same news story for the past 159 hours now.

“Yep, there it is again. It’s apparently still breaking news,” reported one source that originally thought something new was about to break when the red ‘breaking news’ heading showed up on the ESPN ticker. “After 159 hours, should that even be considered regular news?”

The story first appeared over six days ago as an important news story and while it should have been switched to a ‘developing story’ soon thereafter, ESPN elected to continue to report the story as breaking news because they’re ESPN and that’s what they do.

Bar sources indicate that Drew at Chickie’s and Pete’s may pressure the FCC to “set some rules or something because this is ridiculous.”
