News presentation and formats have long since changed and that too quite dramatically. From pre designed scripts that were merely to be read; now news has become more interactive with a lot more features, reviews and interviews being combined with the regular news bulletin.
Another major development has been the airing of breaking news, live action as it happens from the hub of action. Breaking news is not limited to covering social, political or economic happenings but has extended to the world of sports. Sports breaking news is fast becoming a frequent feature of most these news channels who focus on getting the complete lowdown about the sports action.
A lot of sports information gets listed daily and is also listed as sports breaking news. But for the sports enthusiast, it is of extreme importance that this data is authentic and of consequence. It has been seen in quite a few cases where sports bloopers are presented as sports breaking news. Usually it takes quite some time to filter such information and get information which is of any real consequence.
