Slow news

Just managed to get my first sample of Vertical Video on the BBC News app. There seems to be a front page still calling it Ten To Watch. At time of writing, there are 8 to watch, including a clip of Donald Trump's Thanksgiving message from thirteen-odd hours ago, President Obama pardoning a turkey, and the longest - a featurette on Swedish anti-Nazi activist, Tess Asplund "six months after she defied 300 neo-Nazis."

Yes it was May 2016 when it all happened. Buzzfeed revisited her twelve days ago. Now it's part of what we were told was to be "a summary of the day’s news in an easy-to-consume and engaging format."
