I have started on this article but it really needs a lot more material. I suspect that relevant information is provided in other articles, inwhich case a merge is probably best. --ChrisJMoor 01:49, 14 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Missing US terminology?[edit]

So far, this is a pretty good article. I'm just a little concerned that, while the content makes sense to non-American audiences, it would be nice to figure out how to integrate both the U.S. terminology and the non-U.S. terminology. For example:

UK terminology US terminology remarks
presenter anchor
news bulletin / programme newscast In Britain bulletin=short news programme
news flash special report (sometimes)
running order rundown a technical term, I admit
news editor news director not to be confused with videotape editor
two-way crosstalk (sometimes), satellite interview (sometimes)
link toss assuming I'm understanding "link" correctly as meaning reporter introductions

I'd integrate this if I could, but it would really jumble the text, since it's important to keep this international. Any ideas? --Oddtoddnm 08:29, 3 November 2006 (UTC)

I've noticed that in Wales at least, and the rest of Britain, terminology even varies between individual newsrooms e.g. spares/standbys, oovs/ulays, sot/clip...etc!!! How do we rectify this? 12:39, 11 November 2006 (UTC)

mergefrom Cable News[edit]

Cable News has some useful material that should be merged here, see [1]. Quarl (talk) 2006-11-22 07:15Z


Considering this article's emphasis, I propose changing its title to 'television news.' Otherwise, we'd need to include radio news information as well for completeness' sake. Aufheben 14:31, 19 January 2007 (UTC)

The section "Effects on Society" is rather poor, and also should possibly include the distortion of events in order to feed news cycles and how the format often constitutes an improper and unfair medium for reasoned rational debate as outlined by Pierre Bourdieu and Noam Chomsky in many publications. I will try to add to it if I have time. Jeshmir (talk) 15:11, 23 July 2008 (UTC)


So after reading this article it seems that the only countries in the world with news TV are the USA and Canada? Eh? What a terrible article. If you are only able to write about a fraction of a topic (in this case just one sub-continent) then don't bother at all. Articles like this should be deleted. What about BBC, Al Jazera, STAR, France 24, Russia? --ЗAНИA talk WB talk] 08:53, 23 August 2012 (UTC)
