Point number one: It is not "identical to Coincidental Broadcast." Coincidental Broadcast is "Any television or radio accidentally turned on during a tension-filled moment will automatically display a news story relevant to or actually about the current source of dramatic tension." This trope is about interrupting a program that the characters are already listening or watching with a news story.

Point Number two: It now has three media examples, and there are certainly more, just considering how often War Of The Worlds has been homaged or parodied.

This should not be cut.
