Oh please. There is HUGE difference between an entire produced segment and short line of typed text. It makes no sense to have an entire database of typed lines of text when you can just make them to order on the spot. Seriously, how slow do you think people type?
The only possible reason to keep a ready made database would if they REALLY do make the news. I didn't think you were that kind of conspiracy theorist.
Contrast that with a ready made news segment that they would air when someone dies. Of course you know a former president (for example) will die, so you just work up a produced segment with generalize biographical information and maybe touch it up, but you can't create it on the fly like you just type up a headline.
