There's different types of reporters. Nancy Grace has a Green Screen behind her. She always does. She was covering the Jodi Arias trial all day
today and when she's saying things like "We're outside the steps of the Maricopa County Courthouse here in..." she then has a backdrop of
"Arizona" behind her. When she talks about other things, they put THAT corresponding backdrop behind her. It's standard. She's probably in the
You can tell when there's a Green Screen behind her though --it's VERY easy to recognize.
When she says "we're waiting for this bus to go by," she doesn't mean her and the reporter next to her on the screen are at the same exact place.
What she actually means is they're waiting for the bus to go by the other reporter (next to her on the split screen) and that noise is being heard in
Nancy's earpiece and neither one can hear for a few seconds. Notice Nancy pushes her earpiece in, Banfield doesn't. Banfield is on scene, whereas
Nancy is not --if she was really on scene she'd be covering her right ear and pushing in the left earpiece as she tries to squelch the noise. Also,
Banfield's hair moves in the breeze while Nancy's remains still.
And when she says things like I just mentioned, things like, "We're here outside the steps of the Maricopa..." she's not saying SHE is there. she
is saying that "we are outside," meaning the current story they're broadcasting is taking place outside the Maricopa Courthouse, etc.
It's misleading yes, but they have explained it many times. It's a broadcasting technique to make the viewers feel as they are there with the
reporter and therefore trying to make the viewers part of the story --when you feel as though you are part of something, you then take a vested
interest in it moreso then you would have.
The most important thing in conversation is to hear what ISN'T being said.
