All of the cable news networks are running countdown clocks to help viewers know the last minute, second, and, in the case of Fox News Channel, the last hundredth of a second, until a midnight government shutdown.

But while Fox has the most thorough clock, MSNBC has the biggest, complete with a Capitol dome graphic, stuck in the lower left corner of its screen.


Fox’s clock does come in second-biggest, followed by Bloomberg, Fox Business Network and CNN. CNBC didn’t appear to take part in the clock showdown.

Fox News Channel did try for extra credit, however, with a countdown clock prominently displayed on its website.
