Personally rather than worry about the number of hours of news on tv, Id prefer that the "news" was actual news rather than a presentation of "anything filmed is news", predictions as news, feel good stories as news, opinion pieces as news, kids opinions/witnesses comments as news, doorstep attempted interviews/badgering as news, viral videos as news etc. etc
By all means have all day news, but divvy it up so I can avoid all the c**ppy filler that constitutes "news" nowadays. Oh, but still make it watchable - if it's too bats*it boring, I don't want to watch that either (ABC)
