This is why I don’t sign up for any news to be pushed to my phone.
A championship game? Sure, send a message. Well, maybe. It’s sports news, not real news.
But I’ve heard people complain about relatively unimportant news events being tagged as “breaking news” on their phone. I guess the stations mimic their on-air newscasts, where there seem to be many “breaking news” stories.
My favorite is “new at 11”. Why should it matter, if I’m hearing a story for the first time, whether it’s “new” or not?
