Showing the teleprompter will actually require people to read. I thought they watched TV to avoid that.
Also, you wouldn’t get any of the video. That’s very important for some stories, like sports plays. It’s completely useless for others, of course. For example, how many shots (no pun intended) do we need to see of people getting shots when talking about COVID vaccinations? Is there somebody who doesn’t know how a shot works?
And, while I’m on that topic, is anybody else sick of people talking about “getting shots into arms”? We know where they usually go — into people. If the shots go into the garbage, I hope they aren’t counted.
