    Are there any special shows like CNN has? Or are there just segments in the news?

    I hope we’ll see some pictures of the coverage!

    Johnnie, mate – I have some advice.

    The head of the ITV News Channel is some bloke called Dominic Crossley-Holland and the head of BBC News 24 is Roger Mosey – I think you should send them an invoice for services rendered!

    If they ever wanted to know what the competition had planned, all they need do is check this website. You should start charging them for providing all this information.

    The news planning desks at the BBC and ITV news must love you!

    or they could go to the Sky Publicity Website and get the info from there… Just like i did.

    Maybe Dominic and Roger may surprise me with some good coverage of the U.S Elections then….? Doubt it..

    Johnnie,

    Between you and me, I don’t think the Beeb or ITV would…though would love to know what they’ve planned. No doubt the Beeb are going to throw a squadron of staff at the story.

    I make this release a 10-0 own goal from Sky Publicity.

    Would have thought that on the biggest story of the year Sky would have kept their battle plans secret?!

    It really doesn’t matter, Sky have only published half their coverage… I’m sure Newswall presentations, Graphics and Interviews will be apart of Sky’s battle plan

    Seriously? These plans are hardly earth-shatteringly-ground-breaking.

    IMO, the most articulate and objective of all our TV reporters – by some distance.

    Can speak off the cuff at will and, rather like Ms Ford, rarely if ever drops an ‘h’.

    Sky are now using U.S. Election Graphics.

    Name strap

    There’s also a sting which is played just before a U.S. Election story.

    Judging by the new US Vote 2004 advert with Andrew Wilson that is being played, Sky News have hired a private plane for his trip around America. In the ad there are a lot of shots of Andrew around or in a plane with a huge sky news logo on the side, similar to the Sky Copter.

    how fast is he talking? Is he wearing those daft earphones?

    Tim 1 clearly works in the claustrophobic, internal-bubble world of the London mediaaah. Ordinary people (that’s peasants like us, who pay to watch TV…) see things differently. It’s ‘obvious’ coverage to us, but in their highly competitive world, everything another network does has to be bettered. Yawn. Anyone spoken to Bush’s dog yet? See Kerry was in camouflage, out hunting today to prove he’s as good ‘n ole boy as the rest of ’em.

    May Mercy preserve us. It’s another country out there, as Ian Rush once said about Italy.

    Does anyone know when Jeremy Thompson will be in Florida? I haven’t seen anything from him yet. Maybe in Live at Five.

    Good to see Keith Graves, his report today was pretty scathing against the republicans in Florida, which is of course excellent.

    Did you see the Osama video? Alive and well and hoping for a Bush victory I’ll bet…the news here reported that the Bush administration tried to stop Al Jazeera from showing it….spin anyone?!
