Yes, i agree.
The stories seem fine, and the story selection (while being a little odd at times) doesn't seem to be too bad. I don't mind Vanessa's reading style, she seems pretty good, and I'd certainly see no reason to not watch a bulletin she was presenting. But, that set, the boring background, it's so dull. In my opinion, it is worse than WINs presentation.
WINs is boring too, but at least WIN fake a set, and use OTS graphics.
Nine's presentation is a close zoom in on the presenter 99.5% of the bulletin, with a relatively plain local image and some swirling swirls. It's boring!
It would get annoying after an entire hour. It definitely drags down the entire quality of the rest of the bulletin in my opinion.
Some more dynamic background graphics, more shots of the desk, and small surroundings and some fucking opening headlines!!!!!! (the lack of these just annoys me so much) and it would look MUCH better than it does now, and certainly would look much more polished than WINs bulletin does.
