Well stated.

‘President Ford is now still dead now back our regularly scheduled program’ Now if he got up and asked for a beer now THAT would be news. But being still dead is not news; we don’t make random remarks of others who are still dead.

‘Breaking news President Regan had nothing to say as he is also still dead’

Or, indeed, for those sad souls, like me, who are old enough to remember the first season of "Saturday Night Live:"

"Our top story tonight: Generalissimo Fransisco Franco is still dead!"
