How long news cast?

Aristotle was convinced the earth was stationary and that it was flat, then Galileo came up with his own theory that proved otherwise.

This week we discover that the government's targets for alcohol consumption were plucked from the air?

And why do we always, news people here, assume 1.20 is the optimal time for a newscast?

Some things, all things, are meant to be questioned.

Online, time is indeed compressed which should give us food for thought about positing new time spans, rather than aping what TV has given us.
