Breaking news on the news

What do you consider breaking news? Something to interrupt the shows and let people know? Maybe a kidnap child, a terrorist attack. Many other things.
My local news are a bunch of idiots. They think a basketball couch retiring or a NBA player be traded is breaking news. They interrupted a show over a hour ago, just to have a news conference about a player being transferred to a new team. Same thing happen last week when the same team couch retired. I find it funny. I am not paying that much attention so I don't care that the show isn't on. I just find it funny they call it breaking news.
What non-sense has your news aired as breaking news?
