  1. 1. ARCHIVAL FOOTAGE/ INTERVIEWS In television news they show a lot of archival footage and mute it but sometimes they subtly make you look at what they want you to focus on.

When you see the correspondent of certain places around the world you feel connected to the latest news globally. In the beginning of the news programmes you see slow zooms at the desk from a from a short close up to a extreme close up.in a lot of channels the news team purposely anonymize faces of the suspects.
