p.1 #1 · Photography kills politics?


Yeah, it's photography related....

There was an interesting piece burrried on the 4th page of my local newspaper's coverage of the Republican National Convention.

It seems that the vast majority of the delegate audience were using their camera phones to photograph or video the events. The result being that they did not applaud or cheer at the high points. So the TV viewing audience did not get the full impact that the speech writers intended. Many of the "pause for applause" points built into the speeches did not occur and the speakers were thrown off pace.

Imagine all the Democrat spin doctors meeting today to find a solution to this problem before their own convention.

Ahh, grasshopper, the demorats don't have any problems - just ask them

BTW, I'm not a republican, but more closely identified with radical nihilistic anarchy

I watched 4 internet clips of the keynote speakers on CNN. I say "clips" because watching any political convention in real time is a real waste of time. I didn't really see any lack of audience response or timing issues, or even an overabundance of cell phone recording. Of course I wasn't under any deadline to come up with some offbeat, exaggerated filler article. I guess if "photography kill's politics" those convention TV cameramen and photojournalists are contributing to its demise.

Sounds kind of absurd to say there was no applause due to people taking pictures and video
