1. His answer right now is gold

Heal our nation. I listen and don't watch so I know nothing about the optics.

2. Yeah, I was gonna comment, but the physical setup is kind of awkward...nt

Oh, and late add, Joe is actually looking at the people he's talking to. He does that.

5. You are apparently switching back and forth between the 2 Town Halls

so if you stick with the Biden one, you will find that they will cut between the closeups of the questioner, the closeups of Biden and then a full shot of the room where you see the questioner's location, with an occasional pan over to Stupidfuckidous when he rudely interrupts to get some attention.

7. The Biden one just ended

but they are still showing him talking to the audience while they do their analysis.

We have a strict restriction of people permitted indoors in facilities like that here in Philly (10% of capacity), so they have the few people in there really spread out.

11. They have been showing him talking to the audience members

while they did their "analysis", so at least it establishes that he was very engaged in this event.

8. I texted my friends earlier this evening:

This camera angle is really bad. why is he having to look up like that?


I stick by that. Regardless of why, it was still a bad idea to set up the angles that way. The cameras and the audience members should have been positioned at his eye level.

All of that being said, it's not important and won't change any votes.

13. It could be that this particular room in the facility

offered the best way to do a more "intimate" Town Hall-style event, and it is normally already set up for AV presentations (thus easy to set up cameras/mics, etc).

The Center itself is huge and since this was sortof a "last minute" decision regarding the debate cancellation, then the locale offered a way to let everyone "see" him and have a better way to socially distance in a tighter location.

I used to drive by there every day to and from work and would always know when they were broadcasting from in there when I saw the big tractor trailers and vans with sat dishes parked outside of the building on the 6th St. side.
