Mystifying

Why does Fox News find it necessary to abbreviate their crawl? Don’t they have unlimited time and space? This morning “ctrs” appeared on the crawl. After consideration I realized they meant “countries.” When “rpt” first popped up, it took a long time to realize they meant “report.” Is there a letter fee? What makes this necessary? Is this the result of  texting and its popularity? Why, also, do they have interviews lasting 3 minutes when they have 24 hours/365 to fill? Hrd 2 undstnd.
