The crawl at the bottom of the screen during the KSN and KODE newscasts annoys me.
That's obviously not the first time I have expressed that opinion and undoubtedly it is here to stay no matter how many viewers it ticks off.
That being said, perhaps those in charge of it might consider employing some method of separating the types of news stories that are shown in the crawl. For instance, KSN carried the headline on the U. S. soldier and two journalists who were killed Monday in Iraq, then without a break went directly into the news that the latest X-Men movie made over $100 million over the weekend, followed by the news that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's baby.
To have no transition between the substantive and the frivolous was rather jarring, especially on a Memorial Day newscast. Perhaps KSNF and KODE should consider doing what ESPN does. When its sports ticker is moving from one sport to another, it highlights the sport, then begins showing headlines. The same thing could be done between national news, international news, entertainment news, health news, whatever may come up.
It's just something to consider.
