Tell that to WBNX! I remember back in 2005 they had a giant WB bug that took up almost 1/4 of the screen and it wasn't transparent, and no, it wasn't the typical hourly id bug. Then came the E/I requirement where a show had to always show "E/I" and WBNX slapped a huge combination WBNX-WB-E/I bug right over it so that viewers wouldn't see two bugs on the screen. They don't seem to cover up the E/I bug anymore with their own. Instead, there are two E/I bugs on the screen, one on the program and one integrated in the WBNX CW bug.
I always hated the Fox 8 News bug. I don't like bugs that are animated. They were bugless prior to the new set/graphics in 2007.
In today's world, we have even more bugs cluttering up the screen and burning into our plasma displays. Continuous network ads (thanks to DVR's) and useless Twitter hashtags, which are usually the name of the show with a # at the beginning and no spaces. For a long time I couldn't figure out was those things were since I don't Twitter.

Noticed that too on my Zenith converter box. My main HDTV still has no audio from them.
