CNN fakes satellite interview

cnn-gaffOn Tuesday, CNN’s Ashleigh Banfield and Headline News’ Nancy Grace were discussing the developing story of Cleveland kidnapper Ariel Castro via satellite.

As the two were shown on a split screen, it quickly became obvious to viewers that the two were not talking via satellite, but were actually in the same parking lot. In one shot viewer could see a Phoenix bus zip by in Banfield’s shot, only to arrive in Grace’s shot a second later.

The controversial Grace is seen holding her hand to her ear as if there’s a problem hearing Banfield, reminiscent of all those cop drama’s where the actors are always holding there ear and talking into their wrist.

If you want a complete breakdown go to The Atlantic Wire, who is responsible for breaking this story. They include a number of animated sequences breaking down the action.

While Grace and Banfield work for different news organizations they are both under the corporate umbrella of Turner Broadcasting.
