CNN since the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 has been chastised for their liberal use of the phrase “breaking news.” This criticism may have found its new apex on Monday when CNN described their commemoration of the sinking of the Titanic as breaking news. The parody account for fictional “News Room” anchor Will McAvoy drew attention to the gaffe on Twitter.

Since the tweet went out, hundreds of users have engaged with the image across the web, ripping CNN for its vague and over-use of the phrase “breaking news.”


The Titanic sank 102 years ago this past Monday.
