    Default Theatrical Unveiling by TV One Reporters

    Am I the only person who is getting pissed off at TV One's roving reporters theatrically unveiling their faces from the masks they are wearing when the News goes over to them for their stories?

    I mean, it is not as if they are standing knee deep in other people when they give their stories.

    Just more TV One bull ****!!

    Quite agree. Why could they not be unmasked before they appear on camera? As you say, they are not usually among a group of people - most of the time they are on their own with the exception of the camera man.

    The other practice - almost as bad - is telling their story without removing their mask. It's much better to see their mouths and it must be an advantage for deaf people who lip read.

    I guess by doing that they’re showing people wearing masks is normal. Like the old days of being seen wearing a bike helmet

    I think it is totally fine. I don't see why there should be a problem with something like the new normal.

    It is just woke virtue signaling the perfect makeup gives away the fact that they only put the mask back on so they could take it back off. As they are now effectively government employees they will follow their instructions to the letter if they wish to be paid.

    We rarely watch any other channel - others all too American and we just don't like Yank TV - either that or On Demand or Netflix where you can decide what you want to watch.

    I also prefer British to Yanks. I had thought I am a lone. Happy to have a colleague.
