View Full Version : CNN Anchors Do "Satellite Interview" of Each Other...

From 30 feet apart!

Producers at CNN apparently thought viewers wouldn’t notice that anchors Nancy Grace of HLN/Headline News and Ashleigh Banfield of Newsroom were standing no more than 30 feet way from one another as they manipulated the footage and placed Grace on Banfield’s right instead of her left.

The blatant visual gimmick aired Tuesday morning as the two correspondents reported on the latest details behind the horrific Cleveland kidnapping story and pretended they were conducting a remote interview, as the Atlantic Wire pointed out soon after. At a glance the morning segment on CNN might have seemed like a real satellite Q&A as Banfield feigned to interview Grace, a leading commentator on deviant crime, from a separate location. But the segment’s background, including the same building and passing cars, quickly showed that both of the anchors were at the same location in Phoenix, Arizona.

There are reasons why CNN's rating are their lowest in the company history.

TDS/Jon Stewart had a lot of fun with this.

This whole Cleveland kidnapping case happened at a good time for Nancy Grace-just as Jodi Arias gets convicted, she gets another sordid crime story to move on to.
