Ah, television

I used to work in television, and don't let anyone tell you it's easy.

Painstaking, frustrating, exhilarating at times - but easy?

I have done all of the things Ali Moore has been captured on YouTube doing here:

My Dateline interview with Paul Krugman was put together that way...

I was actually in my pajamas in my study in the middle of the night when it was "filmed" and I acted my on-camera in-studio talking-to-a-big-screen parts later.

When I worked with Max Walsh he was legendary at it.

I have posted this not to poke fun at Ali Moore (who is a friend) but to show the work that she and others and ABC staff generally put into the product that goes to air.
