Sky news obviously thinks it has to many viewers as they are doing a good job of getting rid of some with that stuck on screen all the time.And the other day all we got was the van load of robbers going up n down the A2 to court and back,why they thought that was so vitaly important that we had to watch it all the time,not like we actually saw the people in question

I just wonder that if they did show the people in question how far that might contribute to a mistrial - or at least put the chance of a mistrial in question.

At what point will the frenzy to get pictures start to jeopardise the due process of law

It was a nothing story,report on what happened in court but no need to show the van taking them back to jail,there must have been something more important to report on than that,all it needed to cap it off in true Sky News over the top style was Kay Burley reporting from a chase car

Well it's still there. Maybe if they made the strap even bigger, you wouldn't need to see the presenters at all and they could save money on make up and wardrobe..........





Down with that strap.!

they can really save cash by ditching the channel altogether cos that strap is pushing me onto another channel,its like on sports news,i dont see the point of the blue strap telling u the same info as what the presenters are telling you,use it for breaking news but no need for it all the time

It's back today telling us that Oscar news is on active. Wow.



Is this going to be a permanent feature, like the ticker?

I?ve sent a couple of emails complaining about this to mailto:news@sky.com">news@sky.com perhaps some of the forum members here would like to do the same before Sky News ends up looking like Bloomberg (502).

From The Guardian

Seeing red

Monkey can't help but feel that the poignancy of Sky's coverage today of Ronnie Barker's memorial service from Westminster Abbey might be enhanced a little if there wasn't an enormous headline underneath telling viewers: "Press Red for Glitter verdict in full." Just for once, can't we think about one story at a time, please?

It's resurfaced again..they must think we've already forgot about Active.
