Predicted news

Every time you watch the news on Tv there is always an item about what has not happened yet. How does that work???
Typical example: "It is thought that a report due out today may contain information into the possible..... etc etc."
If it's happened it's news, if it hasn't happened it's fill in rubbish

And while I'm on it,half of the weather forecast consists of them telling us what the weather was like today, we could find that out by looking out of the window.By the time the actual forecast starts I'm not listening any more and miss it.

Read somewhere ages ago that if you predict that tomorrow's weather will be the same as today's, you'll get it right more often than not and more often than the forecasters.

Re: Predicted news

We hardly watch the news anymore as it's been dumbed down far too much and is getting more and more sensationlist... a bit like the 'red top' papers !!

Re: Predicted news

Haven't watched a news programme myself for ages. Get all the news via dedicated news sources at work or via the web.

Re: Predicted news

All of a sudden a few years ago all news became 'breaking news'

This irritates me like an attack of piles.
