Crawls march across T.V Territory

The article had to do with the information messages that run across the television screen. These days all of the major networks have this feature as a part of their show to give people important information that they might have missed during the show. According to the text, "There is so much on this story in a given day and not enough screen time for it". This means to me that the news networks use the crawls to cover stories that the the networks may have not had enough time to cover.Many people feel that the crawls are not needed and that they only confuse people and that they just crowed up the already crowed screen. In the text it states that "people question whether this is really making anybody better informed. Many feel that crawl will be a part of television for a long time.
