Breaking news used to be just that: hard news, a big story that had just happened. Today rolling 24/7 TV news shows need their yellow ticker to contain something all the time. They're no longer content to have no ticker when there's nothing to say. The ticker has become a roundup of all stories breaking or not. Where do they go from here? What happens when there is some real breaking news?

Announcing the demise of his US talkshow, Piers Morgan has found himself the guest of honour at a bukkake party of schadenfreude.

Can we trust Bashar al Assad and his regime, which systematically destroyed the country over nearly three years, with the re-building of Syria? Thanks to Vladimir Putin and Barack Obama, Bashar al Assad is staying on until at least the summer of 2014 under a dubious deal to dismantle and destroy al-Assad's stockpiles of chemicals and gases.

Facebook and twitter came at a pivotal time in history. The chicken or the egg theory can be applied here in asking: Did twitter and facebook help revolutions grow, or did they help track people involved in uprisings?
