TV News getting more lazy

2 Mar

super04-sizedTime to take TV news out behind the barn, again.

One of the few places a newsperson can show some creativity is in the caption (or super) that shows up when a person is being interviewed.

And it’s one of the places no one shows anything but laziness.

Sure, you need the person’s name but then most reporters seem to slug in anything that takes no thought at all.

super05-sizedWe see it here in the local news all the time.

Just like these classic examples from around the country.

Yeah, we’re talking about you, KHON, KGMB, KHNL and KITV.
See how dumb it looks?
