Closed Captioning

I love closed captioning. Growing up, my dad always had it on because with 8 kids, the house was noisy and it was hard to hear the TV. I like it now because when I feed my son in the middle of night, I can read TV without disturbing anyone else. The only thing that makes me a little annoyed is around 4:00 am, the early, early news shows start, but they aren't close captioned. That means I have the choice of 1) silence 2) yesterday's news on PBS or 3) Texas Justice.

I really need to write to CBS and ask them to close caption the news. It doesn't even have to be good closed captioning. I think one of the stations around here uses automated closed captioning for their news.
