TV News And The Lower Third Crawl

Back around 2007, I was delivering flowers for a local florist. A rash of graffiti occurred on a number of businesses close by including the flower shop. Having heard about it on their police scanners, and on a slow news day, Action 19 News showed up to do a story on us. They interviewed my coworker Sharon and myself. I recorded our piece on the newscast.

I don't know about you but I won't watch any TV that has that annoying crawl at the bottom of the screen. What's worse, the headlines can be completely misleading if you were to look down at the right moment. It appears as if  Sharon and I were wanted felons captured by the law!

Take a look. These stills are from the newscast:

We even look like we did it!
