Pre 9/11 you never saw that crawler bar at the bottom of news channels. Somehow someone thought it was a good idea to start having a ticker at the bottom. I think this is STUPID! I am going to steal Lewis Black's line : The reason I watch TV is so I don't have to read. MSNBC have done the smart thing during their prime time shows (Olbermann & Maddow) by removing that stupid crawler.
