Dear CNN:

Thanks for the 'Breaking News' e-mail that Arnold Schwarzenegger has been sworn in as the governor of California... but could you clarify for me what exactly about this event makes it 'Breaking'?

I do get the 'News' part, but this event was actually scheduled weeks in advance and there was no real suspense.

Anyone who cared was already well aware of it, and there was no reason to highlight it in the same manner as you do, say, the outcomes of political races which were in doubt or the deaths of additional American soldiers.

You unprofessional, bootlicking, celebrity groupie suckups.
