CNN cutting back on over-hyping everything as "breaking news" – Axios

CNN's new boss Chris Licht says that beginning today, CNN has added a "Breaking News” guideline to its stylebook, to address overuse of the breaking news banner across its network and cable news writ-large.
Why it matters: Licht and Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav have made it a priority to dial back on partisan programming at CNN in favor of traditional journalism.
Details: Licht said he agrees with complaints from "people both inside and outside the organization" that the network overuses the "Breaking News" banner.
The big picture: Zaslav and mentor and investor John Malone have been public about their push to bring CNN back towards hard news coverage, and away from progressive commentary.
