Quiz the thirty-eighth: Breaking news (Part one)

Well, I’ve already quizzed you (several times) with newspaper headlines so I thought I’d get with the twenty-first century this week and give you some chyrons to read. I didn’t even know “chyron” was a word until just recently. In case it’s new to you too, they’re the headline captions you see on a news broadcast and they get their name from the Chyron Corporation, which specialized in creating them. In movies they serve much the same purpose as those spinning newspaper headlines from yesteryear. With that bit of background out of the way, here are some examples for you to see if you can place.

      3/3 for Tom!

      23 is no documentary. Wolf Blitzer likes to do this kind of work on the side. Maybe CNN doesn’t pay him enough. He’s there in 16 as well. I think I have some more of him in other movies, but they will have to wait until Part two.

        Actually, that may be documentary footage of Blitzer. I don’t know. To be honest, I don’t even remember where some of these pics came from myself. I’m a pretty bad quizmaster.
