TV news bulletins will now give Americans an overview of the day’s top mass murders, along with the regular sport, news and seven-day weather outlook.
“We’ll start with the breaking headlines as normal, before moving into the more day-to-day stuff like shootings and weather,” a spokesperson for one of the country’s major networks said today.
She said landmark sporting results, slaughters, and weather events would still be reported in the top news segment, but everyday events and shootings would be reported further down the bulletin. “That’s the formula that people have come to expect”.
Shorter 30-second updates will just contain a snapshot of the latest news and shootings.
