Looking at the caps and having seen the other US channels tonight such as MSNBC and Fox, it's very noticable the diffrence in style between US and UK news programmes (and I count AJE with the UK channels as lots of people who worked on it's launch came from UK channels like Sky).
The US clutter their screen with as much information as they can, layer on top of layer, flipping and rotating. Compare that with the BBC and AJE who have very clean, concise, no-nonsense graphics.
Fox is the worst at the moment, they's got several rows of stats at the bottom of the screen and sitting on the top of them is the normal 'alert' etc astons which are overlapping the stats.
The same goes for the sets - CNNs in the cap above is just crazy.
