I won't be generating the news myself, it would be world news headlines.

The cell just clips the iframe - the script measures the length of the headlines and if one is too long to fit without a word wrap, it moves to the next one on the list until there's three that fit.
It's a fairly complicated and lengthy script as these things go. It's all text processing.
Yep, its a trade off. Moreover or other news services are letting you use their news gathering services in return for branding. So its understandable they want their feeds and branding to stand out! Also look at the fine print. If the service is anyway smart they will disallow any non-cosmetic tweaking to the way the script is displayed in their TOS. If you become a problem they can sue you or far more likely, just ban your server from accessing their scripts directly.
