[Edition 45] NEW YORK, Wednesday: A presenter on CNN has managed to pad for nearly 20 hours straight, during the network’s coverage of the World Trade Center disaster.

Hampered by a total absence of details, and a limitation of pictures, the reporter nonetheless managed to stretch his speculative comments over a record length of time. Unabashed about repetition, the experienced journalist maintained a fluent string of fittingly sombre platitudes.

He postulated that the event was “tragic” and “a sorry day for America”. He also described it as a “terrible assault on our nation’s democracy.” One minute later, he reiterated all of these phrases, before cuing the CNN control room to replay that footage of the plane going into the building.
