North West Today
Richard Quest is the WORST presenter I have ever heard. Shocking.
FYI 8 minutes of coverage on the BBC News at Six (incl. headline sequence+titles) this evening. Plus George had his glasses on!

Love how "Hurricane Sandy" isn't deemed a dramatic enough name by many in the media so they've come up with the more frightening "Frankenstorm" instead.
Shouldn't that have been posted in the "John Logie Baird has Invented Television"
Also on CNN International just now. Nice to see a bit of Wolf and The Situation Room in the evening.
Indeed. Nice to have a direct stream though as CNNi have a nasty habit of just opting out when they feel like it.
BBC News is now taking World News America.
If things start to really deteriorate, do you think the NC will take ABC World News live at 11.30pm or just show it at the usual 01.30am?

If it gets really bad would it not be better to stick with their own live coverage, even if it means not showing ABC World News at all.
The Weather Channel is now streaming live on Youtube.

Having just viewed News at Ten's coverage on ITV, I do agree with itsrobert that the tone and coverage of the story was just right. It was given enough coverage to indicate that it is a truly serious event - but there was no hype or "over-coverage" that one might find, say, on the BBC NC (I saw a fair bit of their coverage this morning and found it quite everything quite blasé). I know some of you will disagree with me, but the mix on NaT tonight was just perfect, and quite honestly represents how engaging and informative ITV News can actually be during these kinds of stories. It's not often!
