Apparently Rebecca Black took over from Justin Bieber as the most watched star on YouTube last month. The story was trailed at the start of Newsround at 8.25 this morning:

Ricky: ... It is a black day for Bieber as he loses the top spot.

and then a bit later -

Ricky: Right, Bieber breaking news just in - the singer's lost his crown as the king of YouTube ...

Plenty of puns then, but shouldn't Newsround have been wary of beginning its bulletin with an archaic idiom?
