My prefix is an abbreviation of a 3 word phrase

My infix is what robbers put on their victims

My suffix is what no human being in this world can stop

My whole consists of just 6 letters

What is the word?

Extra Hint for the Prefix Part (as no one seems to get it) :

It is what reporters do before they present the news

  • $\begingroup$ I think the hint will make the answer a bit too obvious @user477343 $\endgroup$ – Kevin L Aug 13 '18 at 8:56
  • $\begingroup$ I believe I might have the word, but the prefix is getting me. But if you choose not to put the hint, it is fine :) $\endgroup$ – Mr Pie Aug 13 '18 at 8:58
  • $\begingroup$ Just updated the hint. Hopefully this can help solve the question @user477343 $\endgroup$ – Kevin L Aug 13 '18 at 9:10
  • $\begingroup$ In my country, reporters either say "Breaking news" or they just start with bad news. $\endgroup$ – Mr Pie Aug 13 '18 at 9:22
