    I agree with Bill Lamb. BREAKING! gets thrown around way too often. With all the false urgency given to royal crap overseas, and flashing graphics when one stupid development happened in the zimmerman trial, I'm not sure how CNN would get people to pay attention to something really urgent, like a terrorist attack.
