Around the clock news
Rohit Deshpande -
In 2014, CNN reported the story of a missing airplane, which was known as MH370. During the first few minutes of the report, they informed the audience of the plane's itinerary, last known location, and current status. It was a concise and accurate assessment. However, then they realized they still had 23hours and 50 minutes of airtime to fill. CNN then introduced panels discussing conspiracy theories, graphics telling people what a plane looks like. Anchors brought in toy planes and used holographic planes to discuss the case of MH370. A news story worthy of a few minutes of reporting was bloated up to cover hours of reporting.
