** The events of September 11th are the reason why tickers were brought back in the first place. With so many information coming in during the attacks and not enough time to read them on air, Fox News began running a ticker at the bottom to broadcast these additional informations. CNN and MSNBC soon followed, and the rest is history.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WebAnimation/FreedomToons'': The bottom crawl on ''The Echo Chamber'' is deliberately hostile and condescending to the audience as part of its StrawmanNewsMedia nature.

Added DiffLines:

* The first known example of a news ticker was used on ''Series/{{Today}}'' in 1952, very early in the program's life. The ticker took the form of a typewritten strip of paper scrolled across the screen and superimposed via split-screening. It was quickly retired due to its unwieldy nature; it would take until the advent of computer-generated graphics for news crawls to catch on.


* The into to Karl's "Monkey News" segment on ''TheRickyGervaisShow'' features a monkey newscaster with a crawl reading "EEEP... SCREECH... OOOH..."

* ReasonTV featured a rap where two reporters are delivering stories of the YetAnotherBabyPanda quality when one rapper notices the ticker and tries to call out his co-host on their WorstNewsJudgementEver. The co-host agree there are more important matters... and transitions to a story about PokemonGo.


* At one point in ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'', Mettaton forces you to watch the live feed from his TV station of the action. The crawl at the bottom displays humorous news stories about enemies you've encountered, and differs depending on whether or not they lived. It ends with "HISTORIC NEWS TICKER HEADLINE SHORTAGE."

And it's done again in a similar trailer for The Ballad of Gay Tony, with the main report focusing on illegal guns trade while the crawl has lines like 'Swine Flu scared by woman in mask' and 'Parents demand school closing - saying public education is socialism'.
