It's quite depressing to keep seeing - and it's been going for a few hours non-stop now - maybe the press is collectively waiting for him to snuff it, just so they can show their obituaries they've got prepared for his career. You can see the eagerness in the current newsreader's face: she's hoping he dies during her shift, so she can say to her grandkids that she was the one that announced this Pope was quite dead.
I also wanted to mess around with marquees, in making that animated picture. After thorough investigations into how to use them effectively, the only resolution I have is that marquees are annoying things to implement into pictures, and that people dislike reading them unless the scrolling speed is just right. Alas, I realise that after this extensive project of simulating BBC News 24's look.
