North American news frenzy

Sam has commented before on North American TV. But the thing I always notice when I'm visiting is how incredibly busy the news programs are compared to those in Australia. I mean, there are split screens, ticker tapes, side banners — for the uninitiated it is like reading under a strobe light. So you can imagine how impressed I was when I walked into a Toronto bar (work-related, of course) and found CP24 news playing. The shot below doesn't quite capture the movement of the three ticker tapes and rolling text updates, but you get the picture.
