  1. They ran out of headlines and are awaiting a bigger story. Trust me when something happens you will never hear that story again

  2. ok. differentiate between witness and “expert witness”

    witnesses should be plenty, and i am certain that there are clips of these people expressing their horror etc.

    EXPERT WITNESSES – usually one finds one who is expert, who is available, and gets his or her quotes as quickly as possible because one is dealing with a breaking story.

    as the story develops, you may find more expert witnesses who can give different interpretations or speak to different aspects of the event.

  3. CNN is a news channel and everyone is not able to watch CNN 12 hours a day. The object is to get the news out to everyone who might be interested and to do that they have to repeat it. When they start playing it over, change channels for a few hours.
