Amazingly, Nothing Happens for 24 Hours

     In the most lethargic news cycle ever experienced, absolutely nothing newsworthy occured anywhere on the face of the globe, for 24 hours, starting at 3:04PM, EST, Dec. 12th. The quiet was broken at exactly 3:04PM, on Dec. 13th, when elections were hacked, protesters were harrassed, fighting resumed, and idiot politicians were quoted saying extremely stupid things to the world at large.

     At 1:00PM, Dec. 13th, CNN was beginning procedures to shutter their entire mainstream news outlet, but prudently held off until news was again being made. CNN considered making their own news by reporting on their own shutdown, which could have filled another 24 hours, at least.
