Lack of Focus

Yesterday, I was watching CNN to catch the latest news about the shooting at Ft. Hood, and I could hardly pay attention to the newscaster because of the 4 (and sometimes 5) flashing, blinking, scrolling, changing, glowing, always distracting things going on at the bottom of the screen. I couldn't figure out where to focus my eyes.

Here's my question: Is that stuff there to entertain people with ADD? Or is CNN trying to cause the disorder? Maybe the pharmaceutical companies sponsor all that busy-ness on the screen to induce adult-onset ADD and sell more drugs. I don't know. But it drove me crazy.
