‘Meet the Press’ creates faux bookcase for talking heads


NBC News is now sending a fake bookcase graphic to live shot locations for “Meet the Press.”

The graphic appears very very fake on air and looks extremely flat.

One better solution to this would have been to film a portion of the set, then send them the looped tape, similar to what is done with MSNBC’s news nooks. NBC also does something similar during the weekend edition of “Nightly” when they have a video loop of the studio in the background, when the broadcast is actually produced from a smaller studio with just a single camera.
