|OK, closeup....now CUT!|
I was watching the incomparable Pro8news a little while ago and they were doing a story on a local food bank of sorts. I apologize for not catching the exact title of the organization. As the announcer read the text of the story, the camera showed a shot of a few people gathered at the end of a table, including the mayor. As the announcer finished talking, there was a closeup shot of the mayor-but only for a split second. That shot was immediately cut off and a "Mr Virjan" was then featured saying a few words. Ouch! It wouldn't have looked so bad if they hadn't included that 1/2 second close-up of Mr. Salinas. But, I guess he prefers even 1/2 second of coverage than no coverage.
