They face that problem every day. The thing that seems hard to understand, to me, is why they become so fixated on a single story. It is as though they assume their audience only wants to hear about that one story, and even though they have nothing more to say on it. Perhaps they are afraid that if they stop regurgitating the same details long enough to cover other news that their audience will flee their channel and look elsewhere to hear the same facts again and again.
I think you may be right about that. hich means that lots of OTHER news is studiously ignored.
