TV Tropes

TV Arts

If they're going to make lists of tropes used in movies and on tv,
they should also make a list of tropes used on the local news.  All
those hacks ever do is repeat the same stories over and over, with
different characters and settings.

The themes and the tones are identical, and after all, isn't that what
we take away from any given story - theme and tone?  The hell with
everything else.
It's why I stopped watching the news. At least online news has more variety 
and isn't a repeat of the same story merely because they have cool video. 
You'd think with the 24-hour news channels you'd get more variety, more 
news, instead they repeat the same stories more often--or maybe have 
different pundits screaming about the same issue.
